Yo. I had gotten into this fight with my lead gui****. He wanted to drop tune to B, but since i only have a 4-string i told him lets stay D and Standard. He ranted about how it wasn't "metal." Skip to Tuesday (yesterday). I'm bored in Science class, so i write out the full tab to A7x's Scream on the back of a paper. I show it to my lead gui**** at the end of class as a joke, and i guess that got a thought in his head. I came over today to get some stuff written, and he siad it was in C# (Like Scream). So we played it, and i liked it. The thing was, my sound SUCKED! It probably had to do with the fact i has running through a 20-watt 8" amp, and the general crapiness of Austin Instruments, but it didn't sound very good. Would i want to get a B string for the tuning, or should i get a heavier gauge E string, or is it all in the general crapiness of Austin. Thankyou for your help, Talkbass.
