that if blindfolded in a room where someone was playing a bass, 98 percent of us bass players could not tell if the player was; 1. Male or female 2. Playing right handed or left handed 3. Could name the brand of bass that was being played 4. Could name the cabinet being played 5. Could name the amp being used I think for numbers 1 and 2 it would be 100 percent impossible to tell and for 3,4, and 5 there might be a very slight chance of recognition which is why I say 98 percent overall. The reason I bring this up is that so many bass players seem to be hung up over who you are, what equipment you have, so on and so forth, instead of just listening to the playing and drawing conclusions based on that. The music you make is the important thing, not which brand you own or whether you are left or right handed, male or female, black or white or anything else.
