Not sure how many folks this impacts...but thought it might be a good topic for Manny and others to address. Folks with slight V-shape front teeth have a challenge (as is the case with me)...hence I've played on the right side for over 35 years. Good range and flexibility (peddle tones through g# above high C). 25 years ago...all was going well until I went to the University of Wisconsin--Eau Claire. Dominck Spera changed me to the center. Results were okay...could play somewhat cleaner, but range and flexibility were extremely limited. Ended up switching back...and it cost me about 5 years of progress.
Anyway...question is...generally speaking...does offset playing represent a significant disadvantage? Might be interesting to know what experieces others have had.
