I tried it out many years ago. I retuned my bass, and just went to a band practice and got stuck in. We were an all original band, so i could play whatever i liked, and i play enough guitar that i knew where the notes were. It worked out ok (by which i mean nobody noticed!), but it would be a massive ball ache to play any covers, and octaves don't fall under your fingers in an erganomic way. I figured in the end that standard tuning was more practical, but i do drop that a tone. : )
Edit to add: it was fun to try out : )
