    i was lookin at some tabs the other day and they said that the tuning was drop D for a 4 string (D A D G). I was wondering how to tune the string to D

    Buy a tuner. Plug it into the bass. Play the open E string, (assuming the tuner is on). Turn the tuning machine, loosening the string, until the tuner reads D.
