      About 25 years ago I heard Robert Fripp tell a friend of mine that this is why he, a lefty, learned to play guitar right-handed.
      I cannot imagine how he might play if he had learned the other way round...he's amazing as it is.

          Bret, i know that Robert Fripp has been involved with loads of big names over the years including Bowie , Talking Heads etc and i'm sure he did some stuff with David Sylvian , not sure if it was after Japan or not ..i remember driving around each night and making a fiver's worth of petrol last as long as possible in a beaten up old Renault playing Japan's Assemblage over and over until the tape stretched....ahhh those were the days

            I've heard the Sylvian/Fripp stuff (have one of the albums--post-Japan...1992, I believe) and have a few early Japan recordings. You would not know it's the same singer.
            The night I mentioned above was around 1993, when he was touring with the California Guitar Trio and Trey Gunn (later of King Crimson).

              Generally, it is advised to wear a watch on you non-dominating hand. So, if you are rightly then you should wear it on your left hand and vice-versa. This is because it wont disturb you in your day-to-day task.

                I usually wear my watch on my left wrist. However, every so often, I wear it on my right wrist. Sometimes, I'll wear a watch on each wrist.
