Thanks guys. The colors were actually a bit of a challenge, because I had visualized the sig in my head before I started working on it, but the only stock I could find was a blue guitar.

Thank you Photoshop for the "Replace Color" function.

Tbh, coming from a guitar player, it's kinda bad imo, since you have the guitar upside down. xP

Some of the best guitarists in the world played the guitar upside down. (because they were left handed)

The only one I can think of off the top of my head is Jimi Hendrix, and that was because Left-Handed guitars were almost double the price at the time. And then he set a trend that he was known for.


Can't really think of any others..

I believe Eric Clapton also did this. And many other neither of us knew.

Double post.

After a bit of research, I can't believe I let these people slip my mind. These people all play the guitar upside down.


* Tim Armstrong (Rancid)
* Eric Bogle
* Jo Callis (The Rezillos/The Human League) - Plays guitar left-handed.
* Calogero - Plays guitar and bass left-handed [1]
* Kurt Cobain (Nirvana) (Stetin 2001:5) - Wrote left handed, but taught himself to write right handed also.
* David Cook
* Billy Ray Cyrus
* Willie Duncan (Spider Murphy Gang)
* Elliot Easton (The Cars)
* Jimi Hendrix (Ferguson 1979:121)
* Imai Hisashi (Buck-Tick)
* Tony Iommi (Black Sabbath) (Stetin 2001:5)
* George Johnson (Brothers Johnson)
* Paul McCartney (The Beatles) McCartney first tried playing right-handed, but was making no progress. He saw a picture of Slim Whitman playing left-handed and realized that it was necessary to reverse the guitar, pick with the left hand, and reverse the strings (Babiuk 2001:14).
* Al McKay (Earth, Wind & Fire (Stetin 2001:5)
* Omar Rodriguez-Lopez (At the Drive-In/The Mars Volta)
* Cesar Rosas (Los Lobos)
* Lukas Rossi - Can play the guitar with either hand.
* Jeffrey Steele (formerly of Boy Howdy)
* Slim Whitman
* Zacky Vengeance (Avenged Sevenfold)
* Babyface
* Mac Powell (Third Day)
* Gruff Rhys (Super Furry Animals)
* Ali Campbell (ex-UB40)
* Andrew White (Kaiser Chiefs)
* Ryan Waste (Municipal Waste)
* Verónica Romeo
* John Flansburgh (They Might Be Giants)
* Dave King (Flogging Molly)
* Kaizer Von Loopy (Hanzel Und Gretyl)
* Eagle "Bones" Falconhawk (The Aquabats)
* Paskal Jakobsen (BLØF)
* Justin Bieber
* Paul Gray (American musician), Slipknot bassist.


Also, sorry for raping your thread, WM. :]

In my mind, the guitar needed to be facing that way. I should have flipped it instead of just rotated, I suppose, to make it the right side up. Though, nobody said that the guitar was being held. It could just be on the ground or leaning against another object.
