lefthanded?
« on: March 08, 2005, 12:23:33 PM »

I read on a famous-lefhanded webpage that Ringo is lefhanded... It is quite new for me, because I always knew Paul was, but Ringo, I never heard about this. Do you know anything about it?

There's a really good discussion about Ringo's left-handed style here:

What en excellent thread. Good natured and very informative.
A few (probably many) years ago there was a doco on TV with George Martin explaining why some songs are appealing, and others aren't. (all very technical probably). I never saw it, but wish I had. I have such respect for that man.

It is my belief that Left Handed people will one day rule the world and that's good for me because I'm left handed.

didn't his grandma think he was possessed by demons for being left-handed, so she made him learn to use his right hand?

I heard that too. It's probably true.

Throwing with his left hand!


Would you look at that, left hand again! ;)

So.. I think he's borned left handed, but forced to write with his right hand, like lefties were in those days!
And that made him use his right hand some more..

I'm left-handed, but it's done me no good! But can it really be said that Ringo had a unique way of druming because he was left-handed? Can the same be said for McCartney's bass playing? Any info on that?
