Flea bass lesson... detuned bass??

Discussion in 'Basses [BG]' started by SSCBA, Nov 8, 2006.


  1. Hi, I was watching a bass lesson by flea (the one that lasts 55 min with chad) when I tried to play over the record and i discovered by looking at his fretboard that his bass was tuned half step (??) down. in Eb.
    Does he always use this tune or only to flay ''more effortless'' during the lesson as he played many techniques??
    He was using a SR
     
  2. Tuning down wouldn't make slapping any easier for him, I'm sure. He probably just needed access to that Eb at some point.

    I dunno.
    Blame the singer for not having that range.
