Aaagh! I've Gone Over To The Dark Side!


Recommended Posts

Oh My God ! A left handed accordion player. Not many of them around anymore.

 

Well, actually, that must be a photo taken in the mirror! Although I am indeed a leftie, I have been playing the thing in the traditional manner. And I must confess, I'm having fun! Between my struggles with concertina and piano, this seems to draw on my strengths with each.

 

I can just hear Alison getting down with some Zydeco, C'est bon ça!

 

Peut-être plus tard, Mark! For now, it's mostly simple contra dance and morris melodies in s-l-o-w m-o.

 

Laissez-les bon temps rouller! :lol:

I'm a leftie too, and although I play guitar and fiddle left-handed, it seems entirely natural to play concertina and melodeon right-handed. With all the instruments, it's my right hand that's actually fingering the notes of the melody most of the time. Does that make sense to any other lefties out there?
