My daughter wants to play guitar...

I have 3 guitars she could use but they're all standard, right-hand configurations and she's left-handed.

My wife thinks I should teach her to play right-handed. Since she's never played before, it won't be like she'd have to unlearn anything.

However, I'm concerned that I could be potentially limiting her later on because she might not ever fully develop the dexterity she might have otherwise developed if I had just gotten her a left-handed guitar to start with.

Get her a left handed guitar. I went that route and tried to learn right handed when I first started. I got really frustrated and gave up. I didn't start playing again for two years when my friend restrung a right handed upside down so I could practice left handed. It still never sounded right and I didn't start to excell until I bought a left handed guitar. So coming from a left handed guitar player I strongly encourage buying her a left handed guitar if she is serious about learning

Can't do that without modifying/filing the nut. It's a major pain in the ass. One slight slip and you're buying a new nut.

I'm kind of curious why guitars are set up this way anyway. I'm right handed and play right handed, so that means I'm doing much more intricate work on my guitar with my left. that has never made sense to me. I bet I would be a lot better forming chords with my right.

try fingerpicking and that "intricate work" will be for both hands and you'll be a better player for it.

I'm a finger picker. Never took to the pick. I still think I'd be a better player fretting with my right hand.

Lol...the hard part of playing a right handed guitar is the right hand. The left hand is easier. To be great one must master both in the physical sense.

I've played for a lot of years, and I disagree.

Congrats man! My 10 year old daughter started playing drums this year. My mom, my brother, my father in law and myself all played drums. It feels good to pass it on. Enjoy it bro!

My oldest wants to play drums. It's the reason why she started piano lessons. The school band program requires that anyone playing percussion has at least 2 years of piano...

My dad is a retired band teacher and I played trombone for him from 6th grade through high school but put it down and havenít picked up a musical instrument since so heís excited that Iíve bought an upright bass and have been learning how to play. When he and mom get back from Texas this spring he wants to get together and jam.
