My daughter wants to play guitar...

I have 3 guitars she could use but they're all standard, right-hand configurations and she's left-handed.

My wife thinks I should teach her to play right-handed. Since she's never played before, it won't be like she'd have to unlearn anything.

However, I'm concerned that I could be potentially limiting her later on because she might not ever fully develop the dexterity she might have otherwise developed if I had just gotten her a left-handed guitar to start with.

of course, if this lefty would've learned to play right-handed, he might have amounted to something.

Notice that Jimi is actually playing a RIGHT-HANDED guitar.

Jim and Tony both learned to play before they actually made left-handed guitars.

I'm lefty, I tried righty with the same thoughts in mind. It didn't work out so my father took the guitar to a shop & had it flipped like Hendrix.

I felt much better about myself and my playing. I felt more comfortable in the lefty setting than the righty & my playing took off. Don't do it to your daughter, if she's lefty - she's a lefty.

Sure the selection is extremely limiting in terms of buying a new ax down the line but I've always found great guitars.

Just my two cents since I've been in a similar situation.

He's been in a few bands out here and is actually a good bassist.

Johnny Depp is a really accomplished guitarist as well. That's actually why he moved to L.A. originally: To be a rock star.

Look at this way, Dude: If your daughter has any real talent and decides to pursue this for a living in some fashion, whether it's as a songwriter or sideman or a band or whatever, it makes more sense for her to walk into a room and play right handed.

If she's asked to sit in somewhere or sit in on a session or contribute to a song or whatever, she'll always need to have her left-handed instrument on her at all times. IMO, that's a major detriment.

And as I said earlier, guitar is easy. It's just shapes. I doubt she's out to be the next Yngwie Malmsteen. And make her take piano lessons as well. If you can play piano, you can virtually understand and play almost any instrument because it's laid out so simply that the music theory is natural.

Been-there, done that...

My 13 yr old daughter has become quite the musician; instumentally and vocally, as a lefty. In-part it is because of who she is, and in-part because of learning in a right-handed world as a left-handed musically inclined "tweener"...I'm proud, and she "rocks."

Just my experience...

Stick with a right handed guitar. She can use her dominant hand to work the neck.

Alex Winter's brother used to play keyboards in a cover band from St. Louis that occasionally played in KC back in the late 80's and early 90's.
