Lon do you think you could figure out an Exodus song for me please? My band is wanting to cover it and I'm gonna have to learn it. It's Deathamphetemines

Just checked it out. Sounds do-able. I hope you have a 5-string!

I'm sure if Robert was terrible the band would fire him They must have liked his style of playing or he wouldn't have got the job

I tune my 4 string down to A
But tuning a 4 string to tht low is just pointless and it sounds terrible.

A? Wow that's really low, the strings must blow around in the wind!

Yeah, I was going to say if you're on a 4-string, tuning down to an A puts you in rattle country; you'd have to tune all four strings down three full steps, so they'd basically be hanging off your bass like a bunch of limp noodles. You can avoid that by using thicker gauge strings, but that means having to file the nut for each string to accommodate them.

I can tab it for four string no problem, but at this point I'll leave it to you to decide if you still want it, given the adjustments you'd have to make.

To give you an idea, here's the main intro riff tabbed for a 5-string:

Tabs:
F |-----------------|-----------------|-----------------|-----------------|
C |-----------------|-----------------|-----------------|-----------------|
G |-----------------|-----------------|-----------------|-----------------|
D |-000-0-0-----111-|-000-0-0-333-111-|-000-0-0-----111-|-000-0-0-0-0-0-0-|
A |---------333-----|-----------------|---------333-----|-----------------|
1 & 2 & 3 & 4 & 1 & 2 & 3 & 4 & 1 & 2 & 3 & 4 & 1 & 2 & 3 & 4 &

No I use a set of 5s on my bass, I don't use the G that's why. It took a little work but it's fine now
