Let's say you play a 5-string and you really don't feel like transposing a progression that was originally written with Drop-D tuning, so you decide to play it on your D-string. The problem is the guitar is drop tuned and playing the exact same progression in power chords, so you are playing the same frequency. Would it sound like crap? Let's say you're tone is clean, no EQ adjustments, tone knob all the way up, full volume on neck/bridge pickups. What would you adjust in order to make the bass fit better?
