well, i jsut got done reading fretless12ver's post about the new 12 string bass that is out, and i went to his website, very nice site, and i love the tim king interview...i love soil... but i digress so i was wondering about tunings with 8 & 12 string basses. i notice that the standard thing to do is Eee Aaa Ddd Ggg, or some combo of that. has anyone ever changed the tunings to make various chords? for example Ebe Aea Dad Gdg you know, like changing the small strings to make other chords, like in that case, tuning one string in each group to a fifth higher, i suppose you could even get real crazy and tune them something like E aflat b etc. you know what i mean? has anyone ever tried that?
