B-E-A-D-G for me.. When I've had more than one, I have tuned it A-D-A-D-G
Why would you want to have two strings tuned only a whole tone apart?
Both , depends on the gig. I mostly play jazz and do a lot of solo stuff so the high C is nice , and i dont like the fat neck of a 6-string.
I have a fretless EADGC.
And, a fretted BEADG.
I use the fretless for jazzy, solo stuff.
The fretted for the big low groove thing.
Never got use to a 6-string.
Played one for 3 years.
BEADG. I don't need any higher notes than I can reach on the G string. Even though I rarely go lower that D, I like the B string because I don't have to change my left hand position as much as I do with a 4 string.
Mostly EADGC, but quite often ADADA or DGDGD. Once I finish saving my pennies for a Conklin 10-string, my fivers will be just used for alternate tunings.
My Valenti fretless (so sexy) is EADGC, but my Lakland is BEADG. Different styles/applications == different tunings!
