The Welsh say cacky handed.
Like others who have posted, I am fairly ambidextrous....but once I learn to do something one way I stick
with it because I get good at doing it that way...
overhand throw-- left handed
underhand throw- right handed
play guitar- right
I had a girlfriend with a lefty guitar and I got to where I could play cowboy chords on it reasonably well...
made me realize I could learn the play the other way but it would almost be like starting over. If you are ever
trying to teach someone guitar and don't remember how hard it was in the beginning, just play the opposite-handed
guitar for a few minutes and it will all come right back to you.
Yes Jimi wrote right handed- reportedly because he was taught to use his right hand by teachers in school- the "correct way" was to always use your right hand for everything. The left hand was "sinister" and to some, was, at worst, a sign of the devil... and at best, the wrong way to do things.
But from all reports, he considered himself a lefty.
Also, according to brother Leon Hendrix, when Jimi's father got him his first guitar, he was required to play it righthanded when his father was around, but then switched to lefty when his Dad was gone.
It ain't my fault you're wrong handed!
my brother is like chris m does about half of everything left handed and the other things he does right handed. cant seem to make his mind up..
plays guitar righty
eats righty , that means his fork is in right hand
uses saws and drills lefty
I think hes cross eyed too
It's however you train your brain to work via repetition, i'm right handed but kick best with my left foot.
I used to prefer my right foot but I was forced to train my left so much that I ended up preferring to use it.
They used to beat the lefthandedness out of folks in schools up until some time in the 60's- early 70s. My Grandma was left handed and used to tell of being beaten by teachers at school for it in the 20's-30's.
they beat most of the leftyness out of me back then.... if you didn't hold a pencil in your right hand there was trouble...
couldn't stop me kicking/surfing lefty though...
guitars were all right handed as were the books, so I learned guitar righty...
they didn't actually beat you as young kids, let's say it was positive encouragement...
it starts at home when your folks don't even realise you might be lefthanded and just teach you the way they do it.. if they are right handers...
my handwriting is rubbish as a result, I feel.... during copy book class in gr4 I tried so hard to copy the script inside the lines but never could get it good enough for the crabby old teacher... she'd take one look at my efforts, decide I was just goofing around and would send me to stand outside in the corridor.... then if the headmaster was walking by and saw you, it was up the office for a caning for being sent out of class...
I couldn't win with hand writing even when I tried....
If you ask me, the whole lefty "early death" statistic is skewed by Duane Allman's propensity to drive a motorcycle too fast.
Do you realize that "ambidextrous" means possessing two right hands?
The world is a funny place. Because of left-right statistics I, as a lefty, had to learn to use a mouse right-handedly because I would be sharing computers with righties and they couldn't handle either using the mouse on the left OR switching the mouse over.
I play guitar right handed. My first guitar teacher gave up on me because he thought my right hand was hopeless. Seven years later he served as promoter to bring my band back to my hometown.
I play guitar right handed, operate a mixing console right-handed (I'm a recording engineer/producer), punt a football left-handed, kick off right-handed, throw left-handed, use a ratchet wrench right-handed, use a hammer or screwdriver left-handed, etc.
After years of piddling at drums and considering myself absolutely uncoordinated, I discovered that I just need to play left-handed!
And here is a factoid most people don't know about: we both see and hear handedly. The right-handed person wants to hear fast activity on the right and sustained tones on the left. The right-handed brain looks at a picture by starting at the lower right corner and spiraling in to the center counter-clockwise. A lefty does the opposite.
All lefty, all the time here. I’m going to do what feels natural to me, as far as handedness goes. I’ve managed to get guitars I want, either by being patient or putting them together from parts. In fact, it keeps the GAS way down here!

Lefty here all the way. The way I look at it, you play with the cards you’re dealt. All in all, I have little to complain about. I’ve managed to get my hands on some pretty nice lefty guitars over the years.
I’ve read several articles about lefties lifespans being shorter than righties. With the life I’ve lived, it’s a miracle I’m still here. I’m playing with the house’s money. So. Be. It.
Lets have some fun with a left handed piano.
I am ambisinister.
Baseball: throw lefty, hit righty
Spin fishing: cast right handed, retrieve left handed
Fly fishing: cast left handed, retrieve right handed
Skateboard: left foot in front
Surfing: never done it
Drumming: never done it on a drum kit. Had no idea there was a difference between righty and lefty
Pancho and Lefty: can't play because I play right-handed.
What about the claims that lefties are smarter, since it was the clever ones who could avoid being blamed for when the well went bad, the volcano got gas, disco began.....? And the extra-quirkiness quotient?
Got a son and had a grandma, cousin, and uncle who were lefties. They all were bright, and only two were quirky.
One thing fer sure: They tend to have much prettier swings than righties do in baseball. They like low, inside pitches most. And they clobbered yours truly's rolling curveballs a way back when.
I agree, but I always wondered, why are they prettier? Will Clark had the most beautiful swing....
Then ambidextrous people must be geniuses.
Doesn't matter what you call it I'm in my right mind!
Thank You, I was waiting for someone to notice.
