    I'm on the wrong side of the atlantic, and I learned to play right-handed, but thanks for the info.
  3. JMX,,, Yeah! I am a total lefty.. I can't even pick my nose with my right hand ....There is only one thing that I do right handed and that is playing the Bass/guitar.... I have tried many times to make the switch but I got to frustrated and went back to playing right handed.. I couldn't do it....I do really regret not playing lefty from the start because my right hand fingers/thumb will not move as fast as I like them too. I really think that If I had played lefty I would have been a way better slapper and over all a much better player.... plus left handed people are superior.:) Lakerkobe, thanks for looking out for us lefties even if we happend to play righty........
  4. I'm a southpaw, the only thing I do right-handed is play Bass.

    I am also a lefty who plays right handed. I've always wondered what percentage of leftys choose to play right handed.
  6. Another lefty playing righty here.

    My first guitar teacher taught me to play righty simply so that I would never have trouble finding an instrument.
  7. I'm also a lefty that plays right handed. I can play left handed too, but it feels awkward, and I'm not very good.
  8. I knew this dude that was left handed but played a right handed bass left handed.. He didn't change the strings around either. He played it upside down and backwards. It kind of freaked me out. . and this dude could play like a muther-funker......Crazy Crazy!

    Got mine from MF for 549 with 3 color sunburst. This is a great buy.

    Don't know why I started lefty. Big mistake! Very limiting in choices. Must have been that Hendrix/McCartney thing :cool:

    Me too, lefty who playes righty. I also bat right but field left. Go figure
  11. im lefty but im playing a righty bass backwards for now.
  12. I'm also a lefty that plays bass right handed. Actually I may be kind of ambidextrous because I can use both hands to do a lot of other stuff. Never tried to play the bass lefty though.

    I'm a lefty who plays lefty.
  17. I'm a lefty but I play righty, and thats the only thing I can do right handed, I sure wish I had started out playing left handed, I think I might have been a better bass player....

    Yeah, dude.

    Scroll up.

    Obviously, you're going to find more lefties playing righty than vice versa.
