Hey all, im a newbie so please bare with me on this. I just got a Bass guitar and have been playing it for a few days. I purchased a Qwick Tuner for it and as im sure you all know it goes LOW E A D G B E. Do I tune my Bass LOW E or E on the 4th and thickest string? When I tried for E before my string just broke under the tension and when I string LOW E when you play it holding a fret it twangs and sounds awful so surely that cant be right for the sound. So my dileama, play LOW E or E (I just dont want my E String snapping again). Thanks people, hope to hear your replies in anticipation.
