    In the spirit of all the other "clubs" that are showing up on TB (i.e., the MIM and MIA Fender clubs, etc.), I've decided to revive one I started back in my high school days - the Lefty Union!

    All left-handed, ambidextrous, and forced-to-be-righty bass players, guitar players, drummers, and anyone else that's a lefty are encouraged to join!

    I've already got one other member besides myself!

    Send me a PM if you'd like to join, or simply post here if you're interested!

    Also, post your thoughts, if any.

    Well here's the thing. Two handed things, like hockey, baseball (swinging, not throwing), and golf i'm lefty, but pretty much everything else i'm righty. Do I qualify?

    I'm ambidextrous, but I've been taught to do everything with my right hand. I'm still pretty good with my left at ping-pong, and it was always steadier than my right when I played the piano, and it would learn faster too. Can I join?

    Perhaps I should've founded a Lefty Army instead :p

    :D

    Oh, and btw... all of you (except Petary) have PMs!

    Petary, I'm waiting for your reply to my previous post :D

    Ah yes, the Leftorium... and I forgot that Burns was a lefty, too!

    Reminds me of the Wal-Mart spoof in one of the later episodes - "Left-Mart" :D

    I'm a lefty at everything, and I play only lefty basses. Let's do this!

    When I was a guitar student, a couple of teachers made me play righty, but I'd switch the strings as soon as the course would end, then I'd quickly re-learn everything the way God intended.

    Wonder if someone can make a left-handed version of this smiley?

    Need to find a way to add it to the smilies palette! You can't post images in your sigs, so I can't add our lefty friend to mine. :(

    Oh well, he can rock out right here!
