At least that's what everyone keeps saying.
So OK, here's my major rule breakage. Old (turn 69 the 17th), arthritic hands, and a non-player to boot. So for my cbg noodling I string left handed, and 'play' right handed, that is, thin to thick, top to bottom.
Anyone else do that? Just wonderin'...
Hi, many guitarists have done so over the decades, my first memory is Elizabeth Cotton (Freight Train) way back in the day. But three stringers I don't know.
I think hendrix did, but I'm not sure. He just flipped the ax, being a lefty...
Yep, two others that buck the rules are Jeff Healey (guitar flat on lap, but not sliding) and Dave Hole (slides from over the top of the fingerboard. Oh, don't forget the guys who can play with their toes and Django Reinhardt jazz guitarist using only two fingers.
Theres more I bet. Where there's a will, and a need, who needs rules.
This guy due to some physical restrictions had to adjust his technique.
