Been besotted by bass since knee high, parents couldn't afford the double so I had to make do with a violin, not good for a lefty, school made me learn with my right so it wouldn't look weird in the orchestra having to sit at the end bowing upstream. I dumped the fiddle and the orchestra once I could afford to buy a bass and went back to being a true lefty. Been in too many bands with people who were so good in bed they couldn't get up till gone noon, lameheads with dreams and no drive.
Done all kinds of session work from deeply embarrassing C+W to freeform jazz. Had my fill of gigging (til the next one comes along), favourite instrument is a 1950's 6 string bass with a thumb rest that looks like a tie rack, I play everything upside down strung for right handers.
Still love my basses but never got my own double... maybe soon.
