Hi all,

i'm a left-handed beginner to violin and i started using the fingering learning tool here.  after a few minutes i realized it was completely backwards for me.   would it be possible for a lefty version to be put up?  or would it be possible to get the script for the existing version that i could modify for lefties and give back to the fiddlerman.com page?

 

great page, really great chat room!

Welcome iowaplayer,

As much as I like to help out and provide you with all the possible tools to be a better player, I don't think a left handed version would get much traffic.
My guess is that we sell 1 left hand violin for every 1000 right hand violins. Also, not every violinist uses this tool.

Thanks for the idea though. :-)

Have you thought about putting a mirror by the side if your screen and looking at that whilst trying the programme?

I was born with nothing,
and to my surprise I still have most of it left!

I thought of that too.  But I think he'd also need some way of reversing the mouse actions from left to right.  I think there may be ways of reversing the whole image on the screen or reversing a single window that way.

@RosinedUp 

I'm sure that in the PC control panel you can reverse the mouse. I'm not sure about he display.

But the mirror and the reversed mouse should work.

Seen it all. Done it all. Can't remember most of dunno ..... What was I saying???? facepalm
