I was born right-handed, but keyboarding, playing piano, and juggling have brought me to the point of being ambisinistrous.

*HEH*, just stumbled across this one.

as promised, i'll reveal (once again) that i'm usually lefthanded. like tsuwm, years of piano and other instruments as well as keyboarding have pretty much made both of my hands equal in most tasks, though.

Reminds me of a definition from "The Meaning of Liff" (Douglas Adams & John Lloyd)

The word/place was "southwick", and in the interest of creating general annoyance and avoiding the gutter police, I'm not going to tell you what the definition is.

Here's a link to "The Meaning of Liff" with a mile long list of daffy neologisms, some with mildly risible daffynitions, but no "southwick" damn it!

I play piano pretty well, violin up to a intermediate level, African drums a bit well with instructions from a master...

But I cannot catch a ball or, indeed, any projectile.

All that said, I prefer to use my left hand in certain circumstances; my right, in others.

I would much rather use the left hand in the customary way on the fingerboard and let the right hand and arm work out the sensitivity required of bowing.

I thought it might be interesting to add on this thread that my right hand is ever-so-slightly larger than my left.

If a southpaw is a southpaw, doesn't that make the others northpaws?
