Some of my instruments. I've also got 2 steel-string acoustic guitars, a fretless bass w/interior transducer in a thin hollow-body, a keyboard, a buncha harmonicas & sundry other noisemaking devices.

Do I see this right? The fiddles are lefty's but the guitboxes and banjer are righty's?
What about your keyboard and harmonicas? Left or right?

Hiya John The guitars n' banjers are STRUNG righty but i play 'em lefty. The Handedness Police are on my trail. Send bail money pronto--they're closing in. Actually I DO play harmonica backwards from how most people do...i always have the bass reeds on the right (nearer my right arm)....most harp players have them on the left, like a piano...i only realized that last year, after playing harp for 40-some years... ME VERY SLOW ON THE UPTAKE. I can play guitar/banjo with the strings reversed but don't like it, it just feels 'right' to have the treble strings on top, nearer my head, bass strings on bottom, nearer my feet.

Sonny Terry played harmonica the way you do and got on very nicely.
