That's me! Learned on a right handed bass, but am left handed. How do I join?
Been away from this for too long.
Let's welcome these, the newest members of Lefty Playing Righty:
Welcome to the club! Check my other message for Club #'s
Can I get a number?
You are #297 in Lefty-Playing-Righty
This is me. I started out on a left handed bass, wanted a new one and realized I could find any in any of the stores that were lefties, so I just decided to right. I actually feel like it helps me that my more dominant hand is the one on the neck.
I do though still play drums left handed but on a kit set up for a right handed person. I just don't cross my arms. The only change I make is a move the ride next to my hihat and add an extra crash where the ride was.
Hey CJM37, you're member #410 in Lefty Playing Righty,
Have a great holiday,
*Raise left hand.
No southpaw Bass guitars to be found locally when I first took up the instrument. Tried to switch a few years in, but never developed a feel for it.
Please sir, may I please have a number?
Happy New Year!
Welcome our newest member (and first of 2017)
Make it a great one,
That's me! Walked into a GC looking for my first instrument, tried both a lefty and a righty bass, decided it would be better to do all the fretting work with my dominant hand. Glad I chose a righty bass as my choices of available bass increase 1000fold compared to lefty basses!
Count me in. Started playing in '68 and there was no way I could afford a lh bass.
Greetings, Lefty Nation
This week we're inaugurating new members so your attention please,
as these members prepare to take the oath of Lefty-playing-righty:
Please raise your left hand...
...and all the rights, privileges and honors appertaining thereunto.
(4 string salute)
I'm in! Never even considered the fact that a lefty may need a different guitar when I was grabbing my first as a kid.. Learned on a righty and stuck with it.
There is a first class Beatles tribute group names Rain. I remember reading their bass player was a right hand guy that taught himself to play left so he could better portray Macca. Heck I can't use silverware with my left hand. I was suitably impressed.
My apologies for not tending to your request in a more timely fashion.
But welcome to Lefty Playing Righty,
What's going on out there in Lefty Nation?
Another lefty playing righty....seemed to make more sense learning this way. Tried playing a lefty bass a couple years ago and couldn’t for the life of me do it. Seems to me using your dominant hand on the fretboard is the most logical way of playing.
Goat Hill Gamblers fun fact:
All three pictured here are lefties playing righty
Me too, me too, me too!
Just saw this. Yup, I'm an ink smear dragger who plays righty...
