Hey everyone, I'm not sure if this is already a post so if it is then a link to the old thread would be appreciated, if not then your help would be especially appreciated. I have been playing bass for a number of years now but have always stuck with playing 4 strings because you usually dont start on a 5. I study music full time and play pretty much every style, my favorite styles being funk, blues, rock, math rock/core and tech metal. I was wondering if someone could help me lay out a bunch of pros and cons for moving to a 5 string? Help from both 4 and 5 string players would be greatly appreciated. Many thanks in advance, Cianan.
