A couple of months ago I got hurt at my day job and tore my left shoulder up. I am right handed and this injury makes it hard to play particularly down below the 6th fret. Unfortunately I am a deep player and the 5th fret tends to be my home bass. My band does alot of jamming in A. I've been jamming with my one band playing harp and singing alot more than I used to. The other band which was supposed to be the serious project just shut down and the guitar player (leader) is taking a wait and see attitude. That's cool I totally understand. Recently I've been playing a very limited amount because my shoulder doesn't feel too bad but I feel the pain the next day. Well in a couple weeks I go under the knife and I wont be able to even play harp for about a month. Then it will be about 6 months before I am 100% (if all goes well). I stopped by Sam Ash and picked up a lefty bass and that was like making love to another guy (and I'm not gay) Very awkward is what I'm trying to get at. HAs any one gone through this. I'm already goin crazy and I may just go completely nuts. Any thoughts out there?
