According to my Lil Bro, a mere child of 59 and who's left-handed, it's very difficult to get a lotta different stuff that righties take for granted. It appears he's done more than a few nonstandard sorts of stuff to accommodate being a leftie with modifications of everything from firearms to some mechanikin' tools. So... I doubt it's entirely a matter of drugs for Hendrix even though I'm the last guy in the world to condone the type of drug use he exemplified.


As I recall also Elizabeth Cotton, the lady who is credited with writing "Freight Train," played backwards and upside down as a leftie. The style was known - golly whiz, but I'm not kidding - as "Cotton Pickin'."
