The Battle of The Left Handed Electric Guitar

The first commercially advertised electric guitar was  made by the Stromberg-Voisinet company in 1928. It utilized a simple pickup, with vibrations being picked up from the soundboard. Since then, musicians have battled to be the best electric guitar player and left handed electric guitar players have continued to be at the top.

Rolling Stone magazine named southpaw Jimi Hendrix the greatest guitarist of all time. Growing up Hendrix had to restring guitars because there were no left handed guitars to be found. Hendrix taught himself to play. He played by ear and never learned to read music. Hendrix played at the legendary Woodstock concert in 1969 and sadly died at the age of 27 due to an overdose.

Another left handed guitar player at the time was in a group called the Beatles. Thats right (or left) Paul McCartney is a fellow southpaw. His talent and songs made him the first pop music billionaire. He has written 50 number one hits, more than any other songwriter in history. His song Yesterday has been played more times by radio stations worldwide than any other song. (The drummer for the Beatles, Ringo Starr, was also left handed).

There are many left handed electric guitar players famous and possibly soon to be famous. If you desire to become a legendary left handed electric guitar player and don’t know where to begin, go to the Guide To Buying Left Handed Guitars. This will not only help you find the perfect left handed guitar, but it also contains books, Youtube videos and much more information related to playing an electric guitar. Who knows, maybe I will be included a Youtube of you playing someday.
