The photo is the wrong way around. Jon also has the mic in his left hand and Richie stands on the wrong side.

Yeah, they swap footage around sometimes. I don't know why but you can tell when they've done it with Richie shots really easily cos he suddenly owns an arsenal of left-handed guitars. Have a look at the SAY IT ISN'T SO track on the Crush Tour cid really closely and I think they do it on that too!

Its not unheard of though that peeps can play as well with their left hand as their right.

Name one who really can. Usually it's a rumour caused by pictures like the one above.

OK. Take a look at the Jimmy Hendrix tribute bands. There is a guy in one of them who can play guitar right-handed because he IS right-handed but on stage plays everything left-handed like Jimmy used to. Quite an impressive feat to be ambidextrous especially if you can do the sort of stuff Hendrix used to do with your wrong hand!

I wanted a name... It's easy to say "I know somone" or "my friend saw someone"...

Anyway, Jimi never played anything technically difficult. He's influence was more about the sounds he made and the way he played. Not to say that he wasn't an influencial guitarist, but he wasn't Eddie.

I'm yet to see a guitarist play "the wrong way" live. I've heard people who claim they've seen some, but I haven't seen any proof yet.

Well technically the only way to PROVE it would be for you to know the guy. Anyone can claim to be right handed and produce pictures or video of them playing left handed when in fact they are left handed. Whose to say otherwise unless you know them. Or unless they clearly illustrate it by showing off on stage which, as a tribute band, I can't see him doing - there would be no point cos it wouldn't be what the real Jimmy would do.

I'll try and find the band on google anyway - I only stumbled across it accidentally once when browsing so I can't promise I'll be able to turn it up again but I'll try.

Why not switch guitars on the video?

I can play guitar to a reasonable standard left handed; I have a mate who is left handed so if I want to play the guitar at his house I had to learn.
