: 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, 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.

Let us know,
