    Half the bass tabs sites are inaccurate so it is best to work it out. Chi's tuning is downtuned , if I play any of the tracks I work it out and play in standard tuning EADG , I can't be bothered with the down tuning. 'Digital bath' is sometimes hard to hear the bass so you should listen carefully.

    How could you do their songs if theirs an open low C in it? I know for a fact that "digital bath" does have the low C in it.

    Their really is no other way to play new deftones without downtuning.
     
  4. he probably just uses the same fingerning, but of course it will sound totally wacked.
     
  5. Or you play in a different octave.

    i play many Deftones songs in one of my bands... i don´t like to detune my bass, so i play the songs one octave up in the E string... sounds great!

    also sometimes i use octaver or heavy distortion

    There are many ways to play downtuned songs without downtuning. As i said , if you read , it is hard to hear the notes on the track , but most of their stuff is fairly basic to play in standard tuning.
