    Stop being a wuss and just try it. If you keep telling yourself "I can't do this, I can't do that" then, well, you can't - and you never will until you get over it and try. We are talking about changing the strings (something you must be able to do already, I hope) and adjusting the saddles for height and intonation. There are tons of links and examples around the net for doing this. Try that, see if you even like either of these tunings, then worry about tweaking the nut permanantly or adjusting the neck releif (unless you are comfortable with doing that now, but it sounds like you are not).

    I think you intended this as a reply to another post - if you want to repost it in the correct thread, I'll delete this one,

    cheers

    This was supposed to be a reply to a thread about picollo and tenor tunings for bass/setup/etc... I swear it was around here the other day... the guy was getting kind of pissy with everyone too.

    Hmmm...

    er, yeah, don't know where that thread has gone. Must've been that the guy who started it deleted it, I guess... wasn't me!

    I took it as an unsolicited but timely call to action for all of us. For too long we have sat idly by and not Done It. Now, as has been made plainly clear, the time for the Doing of It (or, if you're from the South, the Doin' of It) has arrived, leaving each of us to assess his or her own It Doing potential.

    Maybe I read too much into it...
