: Dean Edge 5 string! MmmMmm! Black, transparent! OOh! its so pretty! and its awesome! i love it! One thing though...Can someone sort of teach me how to tune? cuz im a little edgy on that. We are still finding a teacher, so im just with my bass nowm, (my friend play and is very good and taught me a few things) but i dont really know how to tune. thanks!
Happy new bass, David! I hope all the talking that has been done here served you somehow.
How to tune? A 5 string is tuned (from low to high)BEADG, so go find a regular guitar tuner, plug in, and play harmonics at the 12th fret on every string. That should produce a vibration strong enough to put the tuner to work. For tuning that low B, set the guitar tuner to B (that would be the guitar's 2nd string); for the rest, just set the tuner to the 3rd (G), 4th (D), 5th (A) and 6th (E) strings of a guitar, and you should be OK.
Buena suerte and keep that bass up fron in the mix,
