Default Re: Is this normal?

I've found that if I'm trying to nail a sticking pattern or even a groove that is proving to be more than challenging, I switch to left hand lead. I'm lefty by nature but was "converted" to righty by the school I attended in elementary.

By approaching it from the weaker side I feel that the ego is removed from the equation. Yes, ego can affect a singular limb! The right hand thinks it knows everything, LOL.

Anyhow, start things on your left and pretty soon you will get a better understanding of "center handedness" which is how I prefer to approach things. Certain things just sound and feel better being led with the left.
