: : How often do you guy's have to tune your bass? Mine goes *WAY* off tune in a day so I have to put it back every time I play it, is this normal?
: : Thanx!
: : Emma

: Emma, your bass shouldn't be going out of tune everyday. As Emptyeye asked: are
: you sticking it in a gig bag at night? Also, do your tuning machines have any
: play in them? Have you changed the strings? If you have, the string should go
: around the post at least twice on all the strings except the E. Twice is enough
: for the E string. Other than that, I can't think of anything else that might be
: causing the sippage of your strings.

That word should be *slippage*, as you've no doubt figured out. How's about
some tea for sippage?
