First post here on TalkBass, digging the forum so far. My question is about the tuning I use. My style is technical death metal, and my guitarists tune to B F# B E G# C# (drop B). How I tune my bass is by matching them on my 4 high strings, and making an octave of the 3rd string on my low 5th string: F# B F# B E The main reason I match them on the 4 strings is because its makes matching their riffs in some locations much easier, and in many cases much less of a stretch. I also love having the low f#, cause I use it to create a lot of unique major triads, either by playing a third below the guitars root, or playing the third note of the triad, dropped an octave. I'm a guitar convert, so I'm sure this isn't conventional tuning at all. Just wondering if anyone else tuned similarly to this, or just general thoughts.
