Downtune the lower four strings an octave?

It still won't have tone of an acoustic bass.

Willies. Fuck the lick and fuck you too.

you can, but it will sound very sloppy. I suggest to get a bass acoustic instead, cause the sound will be terrible.

If you decide to do this, play through an amp or nobody will hear you.

+1, the projection of most acoustic basses is terrible when placed in a band setting.

You'd really be better off getting an electric bass and just playing that cause a acoustic bass is really just for a bit of vanity.

That or a double bass, but that would require quite a dedication.
