Saw him last year in Pittsburgh. Truly one of the most amazing shows I have ever seen. If you ever get the chance, go. It's something you won't forget.

I don't like it either lol. I don't see why people would prefer to play it like that. It would be easier to play lower notes on it I guess.

The reason peeps play "upside down" is simple. They are leftys and have access mostly to other peeps right handed strung guitars. Simple, flip it over and learn. I took the other tack. I'm lefty but learned to play conventional right handed strung guitars. It's how he felt comfortable :p
