When you tune down a bass guitar, does it change the notes? Im sayn if you tune down the E string, to a D, would the 5th fret still be an A

No. By tuning the E string to a D, you're lowering the entire string (if that makes sense?). The 5th fret would be a G.

Think about it logically.

If you had a 12 story building (12 floors), and you had an earthquake or something and exactly two floors sank underground (E to D = a whole step which is equal to 2 half steps, which is equal to 2 frets), then the 5th floor would then become the 3rd floor.

Same with guitar. When you tune a string down 2 half steps, everything shifts down two half steps.
