Tuning Your Bass with a Tuner

Tuning Your Bass with a Tuner –> This is a beginner level lesson taught by professional bassist Larry Cook as a part of his “Beginner Bass Lesson Series”. In this lesson he covers how to tune your bass using a clip-on tuner. He starts by showing you how to attach the clip-on tuner to the bass headstock. He provides an overview of how to read the tuner to determine when a string is in tune. Larry then shows you how to tune your bass using the open strings. He explains the importance of tuning your bass up to a note to keep your string from slipping and going out of tune.
