Re: Diatonic handedness question

I'm a southpaw and have been playing numbers up all the while. Music is
written that way, keyboards are made that way. To me it's less confusing. If
I'm teaching , I instruct that way. If you learn that way and it works for
you then who is to say. I've known some very fine players, even bass players
that play upside down.They say I"m the one who plays upside down.
