    Thank goodness my brother is also left-handed and had a bass laying around :D I tried learning electric guitar, but found many of the chords extremely difficult, because of my child-like hands. My brother showed me a G major scale on his bass, and I was hooked.
    I'm a vocal performance major (studying "classical"/opera) and also take piano lessons.
    I'm so excited to begin learning this awesome instrument (my recently-found love for Dream Theater helped quite a bit), and it looks like this site will definitely help me along!
