    What are your ideas on playing a right handed bass when left handed. i do this and i am as good if not better than every other normal bass player. I know people in big bands that do this but i know most people use their dominant... what is your opinion??

    Is it just whatever fits you??
     
  2. Yup, whatever fits you. If your brain tells you to write with your left hand but play the bass right-handed, so be it. I don't think there's any advantage to it - I play guitar & bass left-handed and the Chapman Stick right-handed. Makes perfect sense to me. :)

    ive never met a right hander who plays left, people who are left handed are more dominant in both hands.
