Luckily, there's no handedness with instruments , so I play "right-handed" just fine.
I often tap my right foot on 1,2,3 and 4 and my left on 1 and 3.
I find that I'm more comfortable tapping my foot on 1 and 3,but when I clap or tap my hand, it's on 2 and 4 . . . Strange - I'd never analysed it till now.
