    In my experience, DGBE on a tenor just doesn't work. The GBE part is not a problem. The problem is, a guitar pitch D requires a longer scale.

    However, I love dGBE (reentrant) on a tenor.

    Whoo! My middle finger says "no way." Thus, I would use the 4557 mentioned above for G.

    Here's what I could do on a soprano:

    Emarcano-

    I have 4 sopranos tuned like a mandolin/violin. Finger-picked/strummed, but a Dunlop .36 or .48 works if you want to use a pick to make it more 'mandolin-ey'. Using a mandolin pick...

    I was imagining a flute, violin, or mandolin over each example. Lovely!

    I looked at your books on Amazon. To help with accompaniment, do you include chord names in addition to staff notation?

    A bass amp is designed to go a much lower than a guitar amp, which cannot "with authority" amplify low frequencies down to around 40hz. Bass low E is 41hz.
