In preparation to portray Jimi Hendrix in the Jimi: All Is By My Side biopic, Outkast member Andre 3000 played guitar as a lefty for six hours a day.
The movie’s producer Danny Bramson told Billboard, “I found a really patient teacher and put together a regimen for Andre when he came out to Los Angeles. He sat in a small studio, six hours a day, putting in dedication [to play left-handed].”
The producer continued, “His guitarmanship had to carry the idea of grace and fluidity. John [Ridley, director and writer] and I declared that we didn’t want to have the camera cropped on his face and not the guitar. He kept working in a rehearsal room throughout the production.”
