i'm going to try retuning my bass down to match my bari, bass is a 5 string so i may get it there. think it's a full tone down. or is it up?
The Bari's low A is a concert C, so you'd be tuning the B string up a semi-tone. You don't need drop tuning. Unless you fancy scordatura tuning, I'd leave it at Bi'm going to try retuning my bass down to match my bari, bass is a 5 string so i may get it there. think it's a full tone down. or is it up?
Yes it does, bass music is written an octave higher than it sounds, but I'm pretty sure @Vetinari is aware that. I can't imagine he was intending to tune up an octave - which is probably not possible without finding some very different strings.Um. Doesn't a low-A bari only go down to C2, like a cello? So a 5-string bass actually gets an octave and a semitone lower, to B0?
You're now in Bminor rather than Dminor. The notes are as per the key signature so the Bflats will be B naturals. With accidentals, you have to do what they say on the tin. So, if for example in the original there was an F#, because you've already got an F# you have to add a semi-tone to it and make it Fx i.e. F double sharp. Equally, more likely that there was a B natural marked as an accidental, that will need to become a B#...Just written bassus line out in treble clef and added 3 #. What happens all the B flats and accidentals?
We drove to Salisbury Cathedral to hear that - it was magical.The one I regret missing was the Jan Garbarek tour performing Officium.
