It really hurts my eyes to look at left handed basses

  1. I really don't get why they look so weird. Especially lefty jazz basses. Do they hurt your eyes too?

    Its because it's the sign of the devil

  14. they look really weird to me at first, but if i keep looking at them for a bit and get used to it, I actually rather like it. It's like a new way to look at the same beloved bass.

    THIS thread won't last too long, so before it is closed let me chime in and BE DEFENSIVE!!!

    MYSELF as well as many others ARE LEFTYS, and we look weird? what planet are you from? I guess lefty's who play UPSIDE DOWN like me are at the top of your "weird-o-meter" as well huh?

    no problem, like many will say, don't watch, it's what IS BEING PLAYED THAT COUNTS LEFTY/RIGHTY-OR EVEN UPSIDE DOWN LEFTY.

    p.s. IF you are a righthander, good for you you are part of the MUNDANE MASSES OF PLAYERS OUT HERE, good or bad.

    If you stop to think about what you said for just ONE minute, you would realize that LEFTY's, ESPECIALLY ones who play upside down, are not part of the whole, not part of the masses, and NOT bothered by people who think we play WEIRD.

    I think all you righthanders are weird, but I NEVER say it why? cause if your good your good, who cares which way your playing. perhaps you think it is weird, that I use a righthanders bass flipped, so YES it does look "DIFFERENT", but weird?...ROTFLMFAO

    >>>DEFENSIVE ENOUGH? -- yes If I go any further, I'll probably get

    I'm not crazy, I'm just a little unwell
    LMFAO, I'm right handed and always wanted to play a lefty bass upside down. I think it would look cool, and may get to do it yet ( I hope )
    Thank you from one of the mundane masses :D
