Op-Ed: Is the best of all possible worlds left-handed?
We were a band of four musicians who were a bit left-handed, and we were constantly told that it was a weakness. I don’t think we’ve ever felt that anything was better or more natural for us than right-handed, but I had seen a lot of left-handed people who didn’t seem to be any different from us in any way.

Right hand strength comes from your fingers becoming stronger and your hand becoming stronger and stronger through practice, and more strength comes from a strong left hand just like a strong, strong right hand. You have to build strength and
