I don't really understand why basses have 24 frets, I mean, I've never seen a bassist playing more than the 12 fret.

You're doing it wrong.

You're doing it wrong-er.


An octave pedal is the only thing that can make it sound like a bass. The reason the bass is the "bass guitar" is because it's a guitar tuned down a whole octave, to the bass range. Therefore the only way to make your guitar sound like a bass is to tune it to the bass range. As it would be unplayable if you detuned an octave, you will need an octave divider to do so.

But Guitar Pro would still let you write and listen to bass lines, you just can't play them per se.

If you don't wanna shell out money for Guitar Pro (and don't wanna bust out teh leet hax), PowerTab (www.powertab.net) is a similar program that's free, but not quite as user-friendly (it's simple enough though).

You could get a whammy and go 2 octaves down, I think that's what Jack White does.

^You only need to go an octave down. Two octaves down is the octave below bass.

No hes talking about one of these . With that, you can simulate going down an octave with your guitar.

Also if you are recording in audacity there is a plugin which lets you change pitch so you could record something at normal guitar pitch then lower pitch by 12 semitones.
