I have been playing bass for a little over a year. I have retuned from C G C F (Drop C) to standard E A D G. I play in a hardcore band with a guitarist that plays in Drop C. Would it sound a lot better if I was back in C G C F or could I stay in E A D G and keep the sound good? Sorry I am asking this, I have always been in drop C for the band, and am just wondering if it would sound better or worse. I play slap bass.

yea. just keep the same tuning as the guitarist does so you dont have to be all over the frets trying to match the right note

and i never heard of drop c slap bass?

tuning doesn't matter but most guitarist get bitchy when somebody isn't using the right relative tuning to them (does that sound confusing?)

Ryan from Mudvayne plays a lot of slap bass, and he's done it in drop B and drop C.

I dunno, to me drop tuning anything other than for purposes of pedalling the lower string always seemed useless. To me, I can play the same notes and they'll sound equally good whether it's drop tuned or not. Aside from those few extra semi-tones of course. Then again, I've never played any genres that require drop tuning. I'm sure there's some kind of draw to it.

Yeah, my playstyle is influenced a lot by Ryan.
