So I just joined a prog metal band called Disforia. Their old bassist played a 5 string tuned to D-A-D-G-B and the band really wants me to tune my 6 string thusly, like a guitar in drop D. Out of curiosity A) how many other bassists actually tune like that and B) should i give in and tune like a gutarist? This is my first post (ever) so pardon me if there is another thread like this one. Tried to find one but came up short. Anyways thanks for the advice fellow bassists. I appreciate it.
