"Looks like part of your comment slipped through the cracks.  You were asking about thickness of Weed Eater line.  I am not sure for a wash tub, but I did a 3-stringer for a guy over the summer.  The low-E was a thick .155.  The A…"

"If you are playing accompaniment, ie. along with someone, the standard bass interval of fourths probably works best for single notes, so if your root is G, I'd tune G & C. If you are playing solo, ie. you are the only instrument, and you…"

Weed eater strings and tuning.

I made my first 2 string out of a giant box  that was given to me. I don't know how to play a bass and was wondering what tuning to use. I tried the weed eater strings just to see if it would work and to my surprise, it did . Using the rule that there are no rules, the scale is 36". I am guessing I can figure out the fret markers the same way I figured the CBG's I have built. Being that so many songs have been written in "G", do I tune to "G" an octave apart or do I need 2 separate turnings.See More
