Hey fellow UG ers.

A question. when the 6 string guitar is tuned to Drop D does the 4 string bass guitar need to be tuned to it has well?
Unless you want your bassist to have to transpose everything on the spot, yeah.
You don´t have to, but most rock/metal bassist would do it. If you're only playing in drop D to make powerchords easier to play it's not really necessary. However, if you're planning on playing loads of D chords, then it is advantageous for the bassist to extend his reach to that low D note.
The bassist can just play Es for Ds and it sounds brootalz
Hahahahahahahahahah hahahaha har har har
