Why exactly do left handed people play the other way around?
Quite a lot of strummers, but also a few fiddlers that are left handed, turn their instrument the other way around (neck pointed to the right). I have always been wondering why that should be. Assuming that the fingers on the neck do the harder part of the playing, wouldn’t that be throwing away an advantage, your left hand is better developed when you are a left hander, not?
Any other trad instruments that are or can be played the other way around? Can it be done with a box (forgive my ignorance)? A concert flute?
