A poet by nature, I fell in love with this instrument the other night: an upright
bass. This guy really held his group together; brought them back when they strayed,
gave them a strong, soulful rhythm. I've decided to look into playing it myself.
Right off the bat, I noticed that his right hand was on the neck, while mine would
be the left. You would think I'd know if I'm a southpaw or not, but consider this:
I paint with my right hand and throw a football with my left. With my left hand
on the neck, is that the norm or not? Also, ANY advice you can give a beginner would
be appreciated.
