Getting it Right for Left-Handed Guitarists

It’s not easy being a left-handed guitarist.

Teaching resources are designed for right-handers. There are fewer guitars available to choose from (not to mention you can expect to pay up to 10% more) and left-handed parts and accessories are harder to come by.

But fret not. The lefty guitarist has got you covered.

Our articles on guitar theory include left-handed chord charts and left-handed scale diagrams. And, our buying guides and FAQ articles only include left-handed guitars.
