I hate six string basses, what's the point, I'm not even keen on fives! You need fingers like barge poles to play a six string, Flea, Geddy Lee and Billy Sheehan, three of the worlds greatest bass players but where's their six strings? I rest my case. There's a subject for a whole new thread here!
John Myung from Dream Theater and Les Claypool form Primus use them. As much as it kills me to say it, Myung has proven why he is considered the greatest metal bassist of all time next to Cliff Burton. So with that in mind, I rest my case. Last question Marko, how many strings do you play?

To answer the second part of your question, look at some Five Finger Death Punch. They use a 5 string, But they hammer the low B. Also you may have to learn by ear. their tabs are very rare and I've never personally found one that was correct.

in my opinion you dont need a 6 string, 5 string all the way, though ive played the 6 string i got one in my house (Music Man Bongo 6)and these guys are right you need mega fingers to play that beast, but i will say that if you want to mater finger exercises, arpegios and harmonic solos its the best tool for the job unless you dont have one then i would recomend a piano
