I love your article! I am left handed, although I have no musical skills or knowledge. Being a lefty, I know how we get "left out" (pun intentional). Because most things are designed for right-handed people, including doors. I'm excited that someone is making the world more friendly for left-handed types; you've made my day. Also, well written and very informative article. One word of advice to musicians: After you've created your masterpiece, why not sell and promote your album on CDBaby.com for only $35 to $50.
