I would just like to hear some others opinions about learning to play with a pick because I have been finding it very difficult to move past feeling very awkward, rigid, and unnatural over the past few weeks. I'm a bit concerned over it because I am playing bass right handed, but I have played guitar left handed for many years and it feels completely natural. However, about four years ago I decided that I wanted to learn to play upright bass, and I ended up learning to play right handed because tracking down a cheap lefty upright seemed impossible. Now playing upright is very natural righty, to the point where holding it as if I was going to play left handed feels completely awkward. Lately I've been playing a lot of electric bass. I picked up a right handed one because it made sense from playing upright. It feels pretty natural, except for maybe some stretching that I get from holding the neck at a different angle, but picking with my fingers feels just fine. Now I am trying to learn to play with a pick and it is really weird. I laughed at myself pretty hard when I first looked in the mirror and saw how awkward I looked trying to hold and strum with it. My hand has loosened up quite a bit though, but I still feel very stiff and weird playing like this. I'm a little afraid that I won't be able to play as good with a pick right handed after playing lefty for so long, but maybe I just forgot about it feeling the same way when I was first learning guitar? Anyone else doing the same thing? Or any left handed people out there playing right handed, how is it picking with your non-dominant hand?
