What tuning is your primary bass in right at this moment?

Drop C for me.

There are some things in life that are universally "good":

Sex, pizza, the smell of fresh washing and slap bass.
Standard and Drop D

Back when I was a teen, I was making out with this girl, when I had the bright idea of putting my hand inside her panties.

She had her period.

I'm scarred for life

While this statement is kinda racist and straightforward, it does have many FACTS to back it up lolz.

I am in awe of your sizzling wit. please, accept this congratulatory e-cookie, and accompanying basket.
Depends on what I'm playing. I like using E A D G, sometimes i drop it to D or C.

And if i really want a deep tone, i go B E D G.

Standard, considering dropping to D.

I just woke up with all of my body weight on top on my right forearm, it was completely numb when I got up.

Yeah, that's freaky, especially when really important stuff stops having feeling, like your dick.

4 strings are standard

A D A D G is Drop D tuning, There are two variations of this tuning. Drop D standard (BDADG) or Asus4(ADADG). That particular tuning is the Asus4 variation of Drop D.

and on topic...BEADG, and my 4 string is in no tuning at all, the strings are just setting there getting Rusty and detuning slowly, and they are loose as hell by now. I shall call that tuning "Fieldy" I guess.

Standard, I rarely venture out of it unless playing Guns n Roses, when I'll switch to Eb or sometimes I'll play drop D.
The will to neither strive nor cry,
The power to feel with others give.
Calm, calm me more; nor let me die
Before I have begun to live.

-Matthew Arnold

Arguments are to be avoided; they are always vulgar and often convincing.
I hate de tuning my bass.
For long you live and high you fly
But only if you ride the tide
And balanced on the biggest wave
You race toward an early grave.

Fender - concert pitch, B.C.Rich - C/F/A/E. Tho my long-suffering Squier Tele that I write with is tuned in various odd ways (D/G/D/G/C/E at the mo, also using C/F/C/F/A/D), I never have any real problems doing the bassline with the stock tuned Fender. If it's getting a bit too high up the fretboard, I give it a bit more disto and put the octaver on...instant grunt!
my band bass is in drop D and my everything else bass is in E standard
