okay.
how many octaves lower are the strings on a bass then the strings on a guitar?
both in standard tuning of course.


i've heard 4, i've heard 1.
I'd think one, but i'm not sure and i'm really curious to know.

thank you :]

If it was 4 octaves, you wouldn't even be able to hear it, your ears would bleed and youd be all like "why the eff are my ears bleeding, I can't even hear anything." Then your friend would be like, "Oh sorry, I was just playing some Bass" so ya.

I think double bass doesn't even belong to a bass. It's for the drums.

The instrument's standard English name, double bass, may be derived from the fact that it is approximately twice as large as the cello, or because the double bass was originally used to double the cello part an octave lower especially in Baroque and Classical music. The name may derive from its alleged viol family heritage, in that it is tuned lower than the standard bass viola da gamba. The name also refers to the fact that the sounding pitch of the double bass is an octave below the bass clef.

From Wiki.
