Here's a video I stumbled on while surfing YouTube.
The girl play's left handed on a right handed violin. Had to be different for her teacher, unless she's self taught. Had to be a real strain constantly stretching her finger's for the E and A string's.
Look's like she switched side's with her chin rest.
Fascinating, Fiddlestix. And she plays great.
I'm a lefty, but play musical instruments right-handed, since I always just found it easier than trying to adapt all the instructions and demonstrations. Well, and with string instruments, it always just made a bit more sense to me to have my "more educated" hand on the strings and let "the stupid hand" just deal with the pick or bow.
One would think it must have also been harder for her to find chin rests and shoulder rests that were comfortable.
