I think by creating this you also learned a lot yourself.
As a lefthand player there also was a time I thought lefthand chord diagrams would be nice. But nowadays I just read them mirrored.
(But if somebody is need of creating lefthand chord symbols I can recommend the Extension "ChordDiagrams" for LibreOffice. The created diagrams can be turned to "lefthanded" by flipping horizontally.)

I'm left handed, but I don't play "left handed." Anyway, I have a devil of a time reading Italian tablature. I often suspected that, had I learned "left handed" then it might be :-)
