Jimi H’s Strat
I'm sure I've seen film of him playing a RH guitar without changing the strings at all i.e. upside down. I know this sounds stupid but it was a common thing with US players in the 60s & 70s, it was how they got their distinctive sound. Search for Elizabeth Cotton who was a folk singer famous for the song Freight Train & Bill Staines who still tours around and is famous for a song Fiddle and the Banjo.
Does anybody know if this is true or is it just a guitar makers’ urban myth?
@darrenking I’m not sure but it was all rather splendid. His music and guitar playing were absolutely incredible and I love it all but it was (especially live) “well controlled chaos”. Food for the soul.
