    hey guyz i got a quick question for you guys

    we just recently got a bass in the house and well were all guitar/drum players.

    We like to play our guitars a full step down (fully D tuned) and were wondering what the bass should be tuned at. The same or in E tuning?

    Were slowly trying to pick the bass up as we have drums and guitars already so just lookin for a lil help/basics.

    thanks

    Tune it down to what the guitars are tuned to, that way you'll all play in the same positions on both guitar and bass.

    Who is "we"? Your family, roommates? And how did the bass get into the house - did somebody leave a door open? Is it friendly - does it have a mommy and daddy?

    WE were just wondering... :bassist:
