I'm beginning to suspect that I might actually be right handed when it comes to the bass. This wouldn't be entirely without precendent since lefties often find themselves unable to use left handed devices, for example if you handed me a pair of left handed scissors I'd likely end up losing an eye. This is supported by my ability to play Free Bird on medium difficulty level in Guitar Hero 2 right handed but my complete and total inability to manage a three note progression left handed on the bass. Granted, there are certain major functional differences between the buttons on the guitar controller and the strings on a guitar but I am suspicious. I'm going to swing up to a music store at lunchtime I reckon and have a strum on a right handed one to make sure I'm not going mental.
