The Top Five Notes on My Bass Guitar

1) D. You can play a D by hitting that second skinniest string. And it's OK, not quite as good as A, a little better than G. And this note would've been between those two notes if it wasn't for this really cool trick. See, you take that already great E string and you crank that tuning peg a little looser (not loser, that's what those fucking fusion players are), and you got another D but one fuck of a lot lower (those music-school pussies call it an "octave"). Just hop back and forth from the one to the other for 5 minutes or so and you got yourself a fucking song, bra!
