Exactly. You guys act like this girl is going to be shredding through scales. I would want my dominant hand doing the strumming or picking. Really depends what kind of guitarist she is but if she is learning acoustic which I think all beginners should start with. Definetly don't create a larger learning curve by forcing her to play right. You can buy a cheap left handed guitar to see how she responds
