Always looking ahead
I wonder how inconvenient it is to be left-handed
The only two instances I can think of it being is when you’re writing with a feather pen and when using scissors, but is there anything else?
- Note pads are for right handed people.
- A lot of tools are for right handed people, although a lot of tools are being made to be neutral.
- Playing instruments
These are just guesses though
The note pad thing was from that episode of the Simpson’s where Ned opens a Left handed store. It was something to do with not being able to write all the way to the edge.
Some instruments, like a guitar, are designed to have the dominant hand control the fretboard. And they’re set up as such. You can get left handed instruments now, but I do recall Jimi Hendrix having to reverse the strings on his guitar.
the notepad thing… doesn’t it just depend on the page you’re writing on?
and can’t you just hold the guitar the other way around?
I’m not exactly sure as I’m not left handed, but it’s something to do with the way the strings are set up, they’re asymmetrical. You have to switch them over if you want to play.
I think a left handed guitarist should fully answer though.
