Argh. I went upstairs to make lunch and stopped to practice my chords on my guitar, and I’ve been trying to hold the thing the way I’m supposed to, as a right-hander, but it just feels *wrong*. I flipped it upside-down to see if I could do it more easily the other way — which is, when I was trying to teach myself last fall, how I held the guitar — and voila, my wrist was in the right place, I could hold it properly, it worked for me.
Except the strings are backwards, that way.
Maybe I’ll take the guitar to a music shop this weekend and get it restrung, or something.
Of course, this means I’ve cut the fingernails on the wrong hand…
