Tuning A Bass Guitar to ADGC.
Playing around with alternative tunings can be a lot of fun. A very interesting one to look at is ADGC. This tuning brings the bottom of your bass's range a 4th higher. At the same time it adds notes to the high end. This increases the expressive possiblities of the bass guitar. The shift in range of ADGC tuning brings the bass guitars range closer to the cello's.
