left handed picker

Thursday, July 14, 2011

This is my answer to the recent topic about left handed vs right handed picking.... I struggled for over three years with a right handed banjo and never did get fluent in fingering. Poor is the word that I am looking for. I sold it and waited several years to clear my head and purchased a wonderful left handed Deering Deluxe, have been picking very well for quite some time now and would never consider going back to a "righty". Dr Banjo (you know who I mean) told me that i was a fool for not sticking with the right hand instrument and to get over it. Well he can stick it too. As a left hander I suggest you stop listening to right handed people unless they can honestly say that they have spent several years trying to play left handed.
