    :bassist: How do you tune your bass into flats like Eb, Ab, Db and Gb? I would like to know because I play stuff like Greenday and some songs are tuned into flats. :bassist:
     

  2. Tune each string down 1/2 step. It helps if you have a digital tuner to show you when the note is ringing at the correct frequency.
