Thanks. I'll have to give some things a listen and see if they're actually in D tuning if not I can just play in standard tune unless the lowest note is something I can't do in standard.

I'm also a lefty playing the bass righty. What I was told over 20 years ago is that your left hand already knows how to "walk" and to play on.

I take it none of the tabs say that they're in drop notes? No they don't. I'm presuming that your bass is tuned to standard and that you're not in drop anything or in flat tuning. I'll have to...
