I've looked around of the answer but i am getting really confused with the whole tension and gauge thing. I got a new 5-string bass, Ibanez GSR205 and have been playing it happily for about 2 weeks , but I have found that the B and E string are a bit loose. Would getting higher tension strings make them tighter. Or higher gauge, I'm a bit confused on this. I'm not sure what strings I have on but the A, D and G strings are OK. If anyone could help get my confused head around this it would be a big help. And also I am tuned to standard B, E, A, D, G.
