Like several of you in recent posts, I'm not new here, but haven't been actively posting on the forum since -- wow -- early 2012. Life happens sometimes.  But with it, hopefully a bit more understanding and maturity, right?
I just turned 50 last year, and with that milestone I'm feeling more persuaded to be available to share what I've learned over the years, and be a part of others' growth.  So I'm hoping I can do a better job of not just visiting the forum from time to time, but usefully contributing on a regular basis.

Great to see you here again, Brett!

Welcome, Dan!

Glad you are still playing despite all that you've gone through physically. I haven't played reversed Traditional grip much, simply because I haven't had a need... and I've got plenty to work on already.

There are some players out there who play reversed Traditional grip... and are right-handed. One particular individual I've seen do this is Billy Cobham... but he doesn't more for fun (and to show off  ;D ) than doing it out of necessity.
