Request: ease up on the right handed bass advocacy

Discussion in 'Bass Humor & Gig Stories [BG]' started by cheechi, Feb 4, 2016.

  1. Folks, we all get the point. Many people here have right handed basses. It's fine to sing their praise and say nice things about them. However, we are at the point where there appears to be a deliberate campaign to bring up right handed basses in every single thread. Once in a while is fine. But every single thread is full of photos, discussion, and demos of right handed basses. We get it. right handed is a common bass. Your work is done.

    Thank you. Now back to our regularly scheduled programming.
  2. I see what you are doing here. RIGHT ON BRO! Err excuse me... LEFT ON BRO! Ah, no...AMBIDEXTERITY FOR THE PEOPLE!... BRO.
  3. Is it permissible to post pics of my right hand basses if I am not wearing a hat indoors?

  4. I think it would depend if they are Foderas or fedoras.
  5. I don't have expensive taste in hats, but I can make the obligatory reference to Sire.

    I'm left handed, but play right. I can post any damn bass I want anywhere, so Iong as said picture includes a baseball bat, because I switch hit in baseball. Tort loaf, socks, time to stop TBing on the throne.

    Miss you Nobody...

  9. So when we post a picture of our Right Handed Bass, should we then post another picture of it upside down?

    What about a right hand bass, flipped upsidedown, and played lefty? Oh, with a hat hanging from a tuning peg? ;)

    it would be okay, except the peg will be facing the floor and not able to hold a hat

    What about when some putz is complaining about his right hand technique, his thumb is a gimp or something, and you wonder why his thumb is trying to thump strings on his fretting hand... Then you realize that his right hand isnt on the fretboard . So misleading

    I buy inexpensive right handed basses and then mod them so they are left handed. I find that I'd rather have 5 inexpensive left handed basses than 1 expensive right handed one.

  20. And when they take that away what's left?
