    I’m New to Bass Guitar What strings and toning is this guitar?

    • cigarbox says:

      Hi James, I use the A & D strings out of a light gauge bass set (they’re round wound). Flat wound are better for slide bass but are a lot more expensive. I’ve tuned it in 5ths eg. G and D if you are playing in the key of G, or E and B if you’re playing in the key of E. Or you can play it in octaves. There are no rules with the cigar box guitar! All the best, Nigel
