    hey everyone
    I am concidering buying a 6-string, but the only concern I have...
    What is the tuning? I'm almost positive it's BEADGC, low to high, But then I heard of people tuning it like a guitar?
    And if that is 6, what about 7? Would it have to be F#?

    First, this is the Doublebass strings forum not the bassGUITAR side.
    But...... Most common 6er BG tuning is BEADGC and a few use the EADGCF or EADGBE, and even fewer use F#BEADG. 7s are normally BEADGCF but again there are again variations.
