This is Stefan Gerritsen. He is a left-handed guitar player and member of Verso, a very nice and successful duo with an unusual line up: pan flute and guitar. Some people think that left handed players play a ‘normal’ guitar, holding it the other way round. That is not the case. The bracing of a guitar with a bass and a treble part, the thickness of the top and the placing of the bridge are different. A left handed guitar is more or less built ‘the other way round’.

I want to inform you that they both like their dear guitars very much and play very nice on them. Belmin and Ema had many successes playing the guitar this year, and the last one is winning the Guitar Fest in Banja Luka (Bosnia and Hercegovina) this November. Ema won 1. Prize in IV category, playing Recuerdos de la Alhambra (F.Tarrega) and Usher waltz (N.Koshkin). Belmin won 1. Prize in V category, playing Capriccio No.15 (L.Legnani), Suite BWV 998, Prelude (J.S.Bach) and Mallorca (I.Albeniz). After the concert of the winners, I took this photo.
Congratulations Belmin and Ema !!
