    Is that real?
    I've no clue that it might not be real.

    Wanted to critique that, but couldn't find the right left-handed compliment...

    I'm sure it is, if you don't particularly care for hot shell casings ejecting onto your forearms. Obviously with a revolver it's no problem, but anything else will eject the spent shells to the right.

    Interesting note: Phil Mickelson, nicknamed "Lefty", is actually right-handed. He was induced to play left-handed clubs by a teacher that thought his short game would improve if he led his swings with the dominant hand. Apparently it worked!

    A mirror-imaged sax would be excellent for the right hand in the "two horns at once" trick.

    I actually would be very interested in trying out a horn like that. Not because I'm left handed or anything... but just to see how long it would take to get used to.

    You would get used to it a lot faster than you'd think, I guess.

    Lefties!

    As a left hander myself I have an interest in how other lefties perceive their difference. Also as a Psychotherapist with serious psychology interests it may surprise many of you that it is now accepted that left handed folk often are more creative. This is as a result of the different use of their brains. Our brains are "sided" and usually it is as simple as one side emotion(LH) one side language(RH). However us lefties have to make up for the needs of our left handedness and this leads to a slightly different brain development. Historically many of the great figures in world history are left handed, also they are known to be creative and along with that creativity there is a fine line separating mental health illnesses such as schizophrenia and bi-polar. It is a fascinating area. Personally I like being left handed along with the other 10% of the population. I have to adapt to a right handed world and thus become more ambidextrous. By the way I am not saying I am clever, I just think it, no proof whatsoever!! Think of people you know who are creative and you will be surprised how many are lefties.

    Now, has anyone tried a left handed recorder?

    iam thinking about buying my first sax.. my problem is my left hand is stiff due to accident and broke a few bones in hand.
    i play guitar left hand as all the fast stuff like chords lead ect is done with right so theres no problem there. with the sax it seems most of the playing is done with left hand while the right hand does the bass notes and this is putting me off buying a sax... my question is>> is there such thing as a left handed sax? jacko

    we had a King alto and some clarinets years ago in for restorations that were built backwards. I wish I could have bought them.
