comment Why does conventional playing style give the string manipulation to the left hand?
@AlexBasson - I've pondered both issues - I think the left-handed player using a right-handed instrument relates to the availability of right-handed instruments. Especially violin/fiddle players tend to play right-handed instruments so they can easily borrow another's instrument when they don't have their own with them. If they were tied to a left-handed instrument, and they didn't have it with them, they'd be unable to play.
