I play bass and some guitar in a 4 peace 70's, 80's and 90's classic and hard rock cover band. My guitar player plays drop tuned (Eb) songs in regular tuning, only he plays them 1/2 step down. Sometimes it can work but sometimes he'll play the Eb chord at the 6th fret instead of the tuned down open Eb. Or worse yet play open E or A notes with Eb or Ab chords. He seems to be able make it sound pretty good, so I don't say too much about it, he's also very stubborn and telling him doesn't change anything. So here's my dilemma: I will be playing guitar too, and we are getting a new bass player. As I'm practicing the songs on our list, I realized there are also several songs that are tuned a full step down, and couple that are tuned in G (DGDGBD) but my gitard player seems to be able to play these songs in the same key, but in standard tuning. I might be OCD but I can't play effed up like that, I need to play these songs with some accuracy and many of his guitar parts I will be playing! What do I do?? I will be embarrassed to play these songs that way.
