sharp?

  1. Just out of curiousity, how do strings become sharp? Shouldn't they only become flat as you play, because of the tension?
     
  2. It's possible during extreme temperature changes for the wood on the bass (and neck) to contract and expand. Expansion would cause the strings to be more taut, thus being sharp.
