Left Handed Guitar Player

MY SON IS LEFT HANDED. DOES HE NEED A LEFT HANDED GUITAR, OR CAN HE PLAY THE STANDARD GUITAR? DOES HE JUST DO DIFFERENT HAND POSITIONS FOR THE CHORDS? NOT SURE.

ANSWER

Hi, Paul--

He can go either way.Some of my left handed students have left handed guitars and some just go ahead and play right handed.

If he wants to play left handed--that is, use the left hand for strumming, he will need a guitar that is set up for left hand.
