Okay, first on the list is Mark Knopfler. A great guitarist with his own unique style of playing and sound. Plus, he’s a great songwriter and composer. It’s one thing to be a good performer and another to write great music and songs. But you know all that, I don’t want to write a biography. Anyway, Mark is left-handed in life, but he plays like a right-handed person. That may have influenced the formation of his particular style of playing.
If you want to know more about Mark Knopfler, here’s a detailed article on Wikipedia.
I also recommend an interesting book by bassist John Illsley ‘My Life in Dire Straits: The Inside Story of One of the Biggest Bands in Rock History‘ about the founding and history of Mark Knopfler’s band Dire Straits.
And another Big Guy, mister Gary Moore, mister Blues. So talented and so dramatic person. His guitar didn’t play, it sang, it was poetry in music. And yeah, he is also our man, was lefty but played right-handed.
Again, I refer you to Wikipedia if you’re interested.
Or read the book by Harry Shapiro ‘Gary Moore: The Official Biography.’
