Double Bass String Names?
I have wanted to play the Double Bass for ages, and finally the opportunity has been thrown at me, so I accepted it. I am already experienced in music and played the Cello for a long while, but I have nobody to teach me Double Bass so I have to learn myself. I was wondering, for a start, what are the string names from lowest to highest?

Standard tuning for the double bass is the same as electric bass, in other words E, A, D, G (low to high).
You also have some five-string basses. The additional string is commonly tuned to a low B (below the E string). Also, a higher string may be added instead and tuned to the C above the G.
