Which hand?

which hand?

There is supposed to be some kinda connection between left-handedness and creativity so was just wondering what handedness people are!

There seem to be an unusually high proportion of lefties in our band. 3 out of 4 of us solo cornet players are left handed and so is our conductor!
(Also, 3 out of 4 of us solo cornet players are female which is quite cool too! 8) )

We also have an ambidextrous Sop player - but have decided that she's just a freak :wink:
Of course, us lefties are just obviously amazing and brilliant and fantastic and far better than everyone else in the world! :wink: :lol:

As I think I have posted previusly on another thread, the "experts" tell us that a greater than usual proportion of lunatics and geniuses are left-handed.

I can vouch for the left-handedness, but I'll leave it up to others to comment on the rest :oops: :oops: :oops:

We had a similar discussion recently about music pads, how left and right-handed peole sort them in different ways.
I'm left-handed (and left-footed) and I'm an 'arty' person and when I get the time I still occasionally paint (oil colours on canvas, not gloss on skirting boards).
Did anyone notice the pictures of Paul McCartney in the 'Bandsman' last week. I didn't realise that he was left-handed. There's a picture of him holding a cornet and using his left hand on the valves. There's also a picture of him conducting with his left hand.

I think that last paragraph should have gone in the useless information thread.

I am right handed but once made a mistake when I realised I was shuffling and dealing cards like a left handed colleague. I said I thought that I may be a latent left-hander at which stage everybody fell over laughing.

Also left handed people are more likely to survive from a stroke because they use both parts of their brain so when the one side goes they are still ok and can recover where as right-handed people only use one side of their brain and are less likely to recover - or something like that (it was in the news a month or so ago)

I'm right handed...

Goff Richards is left handed... conducts with his left hand and stuff, but when it comes to computer usage he uses his right hand for the mouse...
Now theres something you may not have known! lol!



I write left handed but do everything else right handed.
Yeah, kinda don't have much choice really coz most stuff is designed for right handed people. :dunno
Apparently you can get left handed pianos. I wonder if a left handed piano would actually improve my playing - i used to sometimes get the hands muddled up - try to play the left hand part in right hand and vice versa :dunno
never had much trouble with left and right hand on piano but when I tried to learn to play a church organ I used to get my feet and left hand mixed up :?

I'm right handed, burt I reckon we could all be ambidextrous if we just practise writing with our opposite hand. I can write ok with my left hand!
