so today I go to my local music store, to by some new strings for my bass. I go inside ask this guy about getting a B string for my bass since I play a lot of downtunning with my E. He widened the nut for my "E slot" so I could fit a B in it. Then He said i should just use the 4 top strings. (BEAD) so widened the rest of the nut slots, and I went home and stringed it up BEAD. But I realized that I'm really downtunned. Like I wanted to play in Drop C, not like way below that. And if I try to tune the E to a G (3 steps above E) I would be stretching out my neck. But I hear a lot of bass players play BEAD and play drop C) or is tht total bs?

thx for any help

A low B is only 1 half step (1 fret) below C. Just play whatever you would on the C string a fret higher.

Be sure to rape the blue note (augmented 4th). Rape it hard and exploit it like the skank it is.
