I too started bass by playing strap-to-the-side in 7th grade. Did it
that way for 2 years, then I played Eb contra for my 9th grade year
(anyone else ever play a contra for PEP BAND?!). Got back on bass in
10th grade, played "out front". I switched position on my own, band
director didn't tell me to switch. That's what I get for reading "The
Instrumentalist"! I probably would have gotten some mighty strange
looks had I played my freshman audition here strap-to-the-side!
