For all you four string bass players out there, what's your tuning?
EADG, DADG and DGDG
odd tuning but its kinda groovy, just tried it out
I would love a regular one, but the singer insists on dropping a halve step because of his voice: option number 2 for me.
EADG when alone, EbAbDbGb sometimes, and DADG when with the band
EADG and DADG when i need those lower notes
E A D G
D A D G
Eb Ab Db Gb
Db Ab Db Gb
I have always stuck with standard EADG tuning. I did use a Hip Shot for a while to drop the E to a D, but even that only lasted several months. Now that I play 5 string, I don't alter my tunning at all. BEADG... When we write songs, it is in keys that we can sing. If we do a cover, we transpose it (if needed) to fit out voices, but that doesn't happen to often.
EADG but I'm gonna try BEAD this sunday at church!
I wounder if DEAD tuning would be cool
EADG, DADG, D#G#C#F#, C#G#C#F#... Depends who I'm playing with. My band uses the 1/2 drop as well as the drop d... when I jam with other people or am playing by myself I like to play in standard or drop D
My jazz bass is EADG
Considering experimenting with DADG on my P.
EADG and BEAD
Damn, I thought I was the only one who did DGDG.
EADG, and thats that.
Though I sometimes use the D-clip on my Kubicki, but I can only think of one song I need it for.
EADG with the occasional DADG. I voted for both.
I tried the BEAD years ago, but I use a five-string now if I need a B string.
Most of the time EADG, sometimes DGDG and I tune one of my basses BEAD.
Dream Theater has a song where Myung uses the tuning DEADGC on his 6 sting. Think the song was Endless Sacrifice.
My Birdsong is EADG, but my Fender Jazz 24 is ADGC. I don't play it all that often, but for a while it almost became my preferred tuning.
Hillbilly metal and I'm tuned DGDG..........makes for fun open notes and cool slides
