I've noticed that when I play on the E string it doesnt cut through very well. I want all the strings to be heard. And I don't want one to be heard more than the other if i can help it. So heres my (stupid) idea. I give you permission to say something mean if this is a bad idea, haha. Could I put 2 A strings (the same gauge) and 2 D strings (same) on my bass but tune them EADG? So the strings that should be A strings are tuned E and A, while the D strings are tuned D and G. Forgive me if this is a stupid idea, but I've actually been thinking of this for a while.
