I don't know anything about bass guitars but i own a p-bass. When i play the strings (mainly the e string, i think thats the right one) they are really slack, even when perfectly in tune. How do i make the strings less slack? I played a friends bass and the strings were really tight like he'd wound his strings up really high. I think this is called string tension, but like i said i know nothing about bass guitars. I want my strings to be less slack cause at the moment it's pissing me off.
