Rowr yo. I'm wanting to do a cover of Prayer of the Refugee by Rise Against - one of few songs my severely girly voice will allow me to sing. I can play the rhythm, it's easy enough, and I figure I'll get the lead down soon... thing is, when it comes time to do the actual recording, I have to play the Bass too. A friend of mine has a bass, but doesn't play - so I use it. And I pretty much suck at it.

Thing is, I've learnt to play the song on both guitars in Standard e tuning, and the Bass tabs are all Drop D. If I play them like that, will it all clash and sound horrible? And if so, should I just shift everything up two notes on the Bass?

The tuning of the instruments doesn't have any effect as to what key the song is in, so you can definitely go ahead and play the bass part with it tuned to drop D, and the rhythm guitar in standard E. The notes themselves don't change when you change tunings, just where they are on the neck.
Strat / SH-201 -> DOD Mixer -> ZVex Mastotron -> Fulltone Clyde -> BYOC OD II -> Ibanez FLL -> VS Chorus -> DOD FX 96 -> Boss DD-6 -> MXR 10-Band EQ -> Boss RC-2 -> Stereo Mixer -> Alesis PicoVerb -> Peavey Delta Blues 210/Yamaha Fifty112

Either way's good, as long as it doesn't clash with the rhythm guitar. Cheers guys.
