One Handed Bass Solo

What do you think of this?? Guy has ONE hand and blows away most bass players I know with two hands!!

Gotta Love it,
There is a fellow that plays with a band,

Named "Lefty" Demarco.

Lefty's hand is malformed, but he is one of the best standup bassists around.

Plays with a rockabilly band outta austin.

Cool as hell to see live.

That is even more inspiration for me to learn how to play guitar.

Great player.

One of my favorite all-time guitarists is Phil Keaggy - lost his right middle finger when he was ten. (No - I don't believe the Hendrix story - never have).

Guys like this love the music, and they overcome whatever it takes to play, and shine.

He's four times the player I am with two hands.

Excellent!

Cool and all - but I think cutting your own hand off just to show your bass-zilla prowess is a tad extreme (and not in a 'Mountain Dew Xtreme' kind of way either).

very talented!

That's probably just about one of the most difficult ways to play any instrument. Left hand playing like that is incredible.

cool

WOW. It's almost beyond words in how impressive that is!

I hear ya... But here is my question.. Did he:

play bass once before THEN lose his hand and said "Im not giving up"

OR---

lose the hand and one day say "You know, I think today I will learn how to play the bass"

Either way, this guy is amazing for just his perserverance.
