: Another way to tune is in 4ths. Lowest or fattest string E, go to fifth fret
: and you have an A, which is the next string up. Tune until they match. Do this on each string etc. There are a few free tuners on the net you can download also. Go to Harmony Central and search. The method I gave you will not tune your bass to an exact note, you will need a reference point for that (tuner Piano), but will put it in tune to itself.

Of course, this assumes you own a 4-string bass. If it's a 5 or 6-string, then E is no longer the lowest string (And on a 6, G isn't the highest). It's still the same method though. :)
