    Left Handed Music

    I wonder if there is such a thing, and how would it sound like? Would the artist be from some far away land, say, Singapore?
    And would it fuse jazz improvisations with progressive rock and ambient structures in a pan global context?

    I wonder....
    Perhaps I m her, and you could find me at http://dominacatrinalee.bandcamp.com

    I mean, it's worth a shot ;P

    Welcome to the forum. I know that Jimi Hendrix
    played his Strat left handed.

    There have been a few piano pieces for left hand. largely to accommodate people who had injured or other wise were limited in use of the right hand. Somewhat famously, Gary Graffman was one such.

    I once saw a picture of a symphony orchestra with the question, what is wrong with this picture. Oh my God, all the string players were bowing with their left hands. The negative had been flipped in the printing!!

    Quite true ... another was pianist Paul Wittgenstien who commissioned a piece composed by Ravel for the left hand.

    Astonishing- all these anecdotes. I do know of Jimi and Paul performing leftie, a great number of left handed guitarists however chose to learn the instrument the conventional way, but I did not feel comfortable holding a guitar like a right handed would.

    There was even once a time when recorders could be ordered both left or right handed

    Just thinking Flute and woodwind in general, you would have to get one made to suite or have extraordinary dexterous fingers
