My friend gave me an Ibanez GSR100Z bass guitar , pretty decent bass, my problem. my problem is the tension of the strings, they feel really tight, i need some help on how to make them feel less tight and more sloopy like a five string or six string. is there anything, anything! i can do to adjust this? please any help would be appreciated. Thanks!

You mean the gauge is too heavy? In that case you will need new strings that are lighter gauge, and don't forget to get the truss rod adjusted.

Just go to a shop and ask em for extra lights. They'll know.

You'll have a hell of a time playin pop/slap with them though.
Do you feel warm within your cage?

And have you figured out yet -

Careful, I went to the shop and asked for the lightest gauge of bass strings and the guy didn't know what I was talking about.


But once I did get them pop and slap was just as easy.
