Toucan

The Top Ten

1 We are the Minority
2 If There are 2 Guitarist Who are Right and Left Handed, It Creates Symmetry
3 We are Better Guitar Teachers Due to the Mirror Effect
4 We Have Better Hand Eye Coordination with Our Right Hand While Righties Don't Have a Good Hand Eye Coordination with Their Left Hand
5 Jimmy Hendrix Was a Left Handed Guitarist So Was Tommy Iommi
6 Very Few Strangers Would Know How to Play a Left Handed Guitar So No One Will Touch Yours

Right handed guitarists could use only left hand to play guitar though. For example - Buckethead plays left hand (doing hammering on, pull off, legatos), Michael Angelo Batio taps with his both hand, Stanley Jordan tapped two guitar with two hands, Jimmy Page played few notes with his left hand while holding nut with his right hand.

Just saying for information. Nothing against the list. - zxm

Only 3%? Oh... - Metal_Treasure

8 Lefties by Default Can Be More Creative Hence We May Be Able to Produce Better Riffs, Licks, Etc
9 We Look Cool

The biggest problem with left handed guitarists is finding left-handed guitar. But I gotta say left handed guitarists look more unique. Though it doesn't matter. I barely strum my guitar with left hand. - zxm
