Is it hard for a left handed person to learn right handed guitar?

Hello. The question sums it up. Very interested in learning the guitar. Not looking to break out solo performances but is it very hard for a very left handed guy (I’m left footed, left muscles work more) to learn the normal version of the instrument?

    First, it's hard for anyone to learn to play guitar.

    There are many left-handed people who learnt to play right-handed. In fact, guitar is one of the very few instruments where people even think of it being right or left-handed. You don't hear of left-handed pianos. trumpets, cellos etc.

    I would strongly recommend that any left-handed  person learns to play in the conventional way - there are many reasons for this and I won't bore you by repeating them here.
