In that video, Scott said that if you want to be a 5 string player, you got to commit yourself to 5 string basses In spite of that, I still own: -3x 4 string basses -2x 5 string basses and keep on going back and forth between the two. Isn't Scott an authoritative figure in the bass world. I bet I'm not the only one going back and forth between 4 and 5 string basses. On the other hand, Marcus Miller said in his video about his Sire basses that some people got 5 string version and buy a 4 string version as well or vice versa. It seems like a normal thing to go back and forth as you wish I know some genre/songs require a 5 string but if we really need those lower notes sometimes, we might as well stick with a 5 string all the time and be good for everything. Still, we go back to 4 string. Why are we wired like that?
