Woo...!

 

Um... is Eric Gales playing that right-handed guitar left-handed, just like Jimi did?!

 

I've never seen anyone else do that.

 

(I imagine that lots of left-handed people would learn to play the guitar that way though.)

Didn't Jimi string his upside down?

I thought Jimi played with the heavy strings on the bottom, just like I'm seeing in that video.

 

But, according to Wikipedia:

Hendrix played right-handed guitars that were turned upside down and restrung for left-hand playing. This had an important effect on the sound of his guitar; because of the slant of the bridge pickup, his lowest string had a brighter sound while his highest string had a darker sound, which was the opposite of the Stratocaster's intended design.

I use to have a right hand strung bass guitar. It was hard for me to learn and the volume ans tone controls were in the way. I let it go for decades. When I retired I got a left hand Ibanez bass and took senior bass lessons at a local arts center.

A lot of hate for this cover but I think it's just as good as Marilyn Manson and both better than Depeche Mode ... but music is just taste
