I'm trying to learn to read sheet music but all the music is writen for an acoustic upright. I own a 5 string electric (B-E-A-D-G) and after a bit of searching I couldnt find how an upright is tuned. So I guess my questions are 1) how many strings do standard upright basses have, and 2) how are they tuned from low to high? Is it the same as its electric cousin? ps - sorry if this is in the wrong topic.
