International Lefthanders Day: Famous Left Handed Guitarists [VIDEO]

Cristina Arias/Getty Images

Don Morgan and I are proud to be lefties! Left handers use the right side of their brain more so they are naturally more creative (and we have a heck of bowling hook). We finally have a holiday to celebrate so I thought I’d rub it in righty noses that we have a killer list of lefty guitarists.

The list is much longer than this and also includes” Albert King, Mark Knopfler, Danny Gatton, Billy Corgan, Michael Bloomfield, Gary Moore and Noel Gallagher.

 


1

Paul McCartney

 
 

Two of the 4 Beatles were left handed, Sir Paul and Ringo.

 
2

Jimi Hendrix

 
 

Seriously. Does it get any better than this? Nope!

 
3

Tommy Iommi

 
 

Hell yeah! The Black Sabbath, Heaven and Hell member is a guitar God!

 
4

Glenn Frey

 
 

Being an Eagles fan, this was one I couldn't leave  off the list. Jealous yet??

 
5

Duane Allman

 
 

Although he and some other lefties play "normal" it's because that is how they were forced to learn. Still, Duane Allman is a lefty! Take that!
