I have a few questions for you 6 string bassists out there, what do you use the C string for in a band setting? What kind of music do you play? And how often do you use the C string? I've been set on getting a 6'er for the last few months, but now I'm only a few weeks away from getting it, and I'm wondering if I should just get a fiver. I know I'll use the C string around the house to transcribe melodies and stuff, but not sure about how much I'd use it in a band... Thoughts? FWIW, I only have one 4 string bass, and it's tuned to BEAD. Once I get the 6'er, I was planning on putting flats on the 4 banger, for more traditional music - it'll still be tuned to BEAD though.
