Eric Gales not only plays a right-handed guitar left-handed, he doesn’t bother to restring it so the low E is at the upper side of the neck…so the strings are actually in reverse order from that of a typical guitar. I was surprised to learn that this unusual style of playing is not that uncommon. Other guitarists who play this way include Doyle Bramhall II, Dick Dale (King of the ‘Surf Guitar’), Bob Geldof, Coco Montoya and Albert King. What is uncommon however is the fact that Eric Gales is naturally right-handed!
Enjoy, and Turn It Up!
