For the longest time, I've been tuning my bass with the natural harmonics lying below the heel of the neck...but it's been bothering me. I always feel like I'm a little flat on the open strings when I tune there. So I've been experimenting with tuning the bass at the harmonics in thumb position right above the heel and trying that. Or maybe the problem is that I'm tuning the strings in the wrong direction...I've been tuning from the G string down to the E string and maybe I should go in the opposite direction, tuning the other way? Anybody tune like this anymore or does everyone use those fancy clip-on tuners nowadays? If you still struggle with harmonics, do you have this experience too and what is your solution (if you have one)? Maybe it's really my ears are out of whack?
