    Apparently this thing's meant to be tuned EADGCF, but he's dropped it a minor third to C#. It's a fascinating sound. The acoustic bass is still such an underappreciated instrument...

    I wanted to listen to it, but after a minute and a half of sus2/add9 chords, I had to turn it off.

    Lovely instrument perhaps, but awful composition.

    I actually quite enjoyed that, it'd sound quite nice with a bit of extra instrumentation.
