: This may sound really stupid but i never even picked up a bass... I realized that my bass was out of tune and i dont know how to tune it lol. i play guitar it that helps... email soon because it sound really off.
:Your guitar is tuned E-A-D-G-B-E. Well, the bass is tuned just like the top 4 strings of a guitar. You didn't mention how many strings your bass had so I'm assuming a 4. If it's a 4 string you'd tune it E-A-D-G. If you are talking about a 5 string the tuning is B-E-A-D-G. If you have a 6 string bass it is tuned B-E-A-D-G-C and just for completeness a 7 string bass is usually tuned B-E-A-D-G-C-F That should get you started. Most guitar tuners should cover the bass range, but some cheap ones don't so you might have to buy a different tuner for the bass. JDP
