  1. on a 6 string, is it normally the extra low B and high C? what strings are on a 7 string?
     
  2. yes.
    F#-C is what i see most off but it completely depends on the player.

    7 string basses most commonly are either F#-C or B-F, depending on preference. Lots of variations, though ..... :cool:
     
  4. I thought the most Common was B-F, then F#-C, Also other popular tunnings are guitar-like, B-E-A-D-G-B-E for instance
