: In one of my frantic "do something mad" moods, i began to tune my bass into stupid tunings (DBDA, GF#EG#, BEBE, and on and on........) and came up with some RIDICULOUS RIFFS.
: Now I can't stop experimenting with stupid tunings. Tapping in different tunings makes me need to 'think' again about what I am playing and where I am going.
: As a result I have improved(and am improving) - both technically and theoretically, and I was at that point where I started thinking to myself 'I've learn't it all', but using these tunings has hammered it home that one can NEVER master any instrument - there is always something more to be learn't.

: Anyway, just wondering if any other bassists use different tunings at all? What are they?Did they work out or turn nasty?

: Cheers in advance,

: Chris.
