Hello All, I'm not a musician but I'm always supporting my 13 year old soon on music. I read a bit and I provide whats he needs to play. He plays guitar since he was 9 and now he want to learn Bass. I bough a budget ESP LTD Short-Scale 4 strings on-line. My son tried tuning it and 2 of the strings just blow out. My question is: Can we tune the short-scale bass as same way as a full-size with EADG?? hope I placed this Q on the rigth forum. Thanks.
