Hello! Thank goodness my brother is also left-handed and had a bass laying around I tried learning electric guitar, but found many of the chords extremely difficult, because of my child-like hands. My brother showed me a G major scale on his bass, and I was hooked. I'm a vocal performance major (studying "classical"/opera) and also take piano lessons. I'm so excited to begin learning this awesome instrument (my recently-found love for Dream Theater helped quite a bit), and it looks like this site will definitely help me along!
