    Wow. I play left-handed upside-down, too. It's good to find someone else who knows the heartache of guitar shopping as well. Love the music. God bless.

Q: So, Scott, ... do you just pick up any right handed guitar, turn it upside down and play it?

A: Started playing guitar at age 7 on my Uncles right handed guitar. I never had my own guitar until I was a teenager and by that time I had learned to play right handed guitars by just flipping them over. I can't play a left handed guitar only a right handed guitar flipped upside down (small E on the top and big E on the bottom). Guitarists tend to get a headach watching me play because they try to reverse the image in their heads to see what the hell I'm playing.
