I am considering trying to tune BEAD so that I can get some lower tones. . . . I really don't use the G THAT much. I am wondering, though, what differences there are in technique. I mean, some of the songs and scales that move to the G will need to be adjusted but I really don't know how to compensate............ I guess, as I think about it, everything is just shifted down - but I would need to think differently about how I play. . . . wouldn't I? Is it a pain to adjust? Some of you guys that have done it please let me know, I don't want to buy a 5-string set (more than the 4) only to switch back.
