    i was wondering if there are standard tunings for jazz and/or classical music?
     
  2. In jazz, EADG, and if using a 5-stringer, usually it's a high-C.
    In classical, EADG, and if using a 5-stringer, usually a low-B or low-C.
    A limited number of players, like the late Red Mitchell and canadian Joel Quarrington, use fifth tuning. (CGDA)
