Hi all, first post here. I'm curious as to what you guys think I can do in terms of recording if I have an 8 string and a 4 string guitar. I cannot finance the purchase of a 5 string bass at this time, so it seems to me I have two options: 1. Use pitch shifting to shift the 8 string down to bass range 2. Or put the heaviest gauge strings I can find on the 4 string bass and tune down as low as humanly or physically possible. Which one is more viable? or can anyone else think of an alternative? Thanks!
