I am getting into the wonderful world of ERGs, cab sims, IRs, and drum software, and I am having a blast recording songs at home. I recently bought a 7 string and have it tuned to Drop G. I also have a 5 string bass that is tuned the same. Now that I've been bit by the bug, I am curious about getting an 8 string, but I have a couple of questions first.. Hoping y'all can hook me up with some info. 1. When tuning my bass to match the 7 string, ANY tuner I use has a hard time picking up the low G. Is there a tuner you'd recommend for super low tunings? 2. When I inevitably make the jump to 8 string, how would the bass play nice with it? When writing with an 8, does the bass just play an octave higher? I can't see how you'd tune down so low, as with Drop G the string is quite floppy (even though I put some heavier gauge strings on it). I guess I am just looking for some tips on how to approach bass playing when it comes to ERGs. Any tips, YouTube links, or guidance would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance!
