    What, the "h"?
  3. you mean you dont tune to "h" on your guitar?
  4. I don't recall ever having an "h" string on my bass, but I think I'lll tune to that next time I'm tuning up. Maybe Michael Manring has used that tuning before...

    well, in (for example) germany "h" is actually "b", and the German "b" is "b flat".

    Well, ignorance is no virtue. There is much more to the world than USA. Did you for example ever hear of a guy called Bach. He used "h" for a note all the time and it sounded pretty good...

    Well, it's still a mistake as the tab creator didn't know that "h" is called "b" in English even though they wrote the tab for an English-speaking audience. This isn't really stuff you find in any dictionary, but it's still fairly easy to figure out with a bit of Web research.
  9. Comeon man, don't use logic or facts to get in the way of a "stupid ignorant americans" rant.
