A Slightly Strange Alternate Tuning Song Order on Event
Last night I pulled a 3-song event on bass with 2 D-tuning songs and one standard tuned song. I don't remember ever having this happen on guitar, but it happened on bass last night. It always seemed like RS kept good track of whether I was in D-tuning or standard tuning on guitar and I don't remember ever having to switch back and forth.
Last night, however, on my 3-song event, the first song was one of the D-tune songs, the second was in standard tuning, and then the third was another D-tuned song. Two retunes in one 3-song event. . . Weird. Not the end of the world, but if I were actually putting together a set list for a live performance I would definitely avoid a song order where I had to retune twice in 3 songs (especially for bass - I only have one bass so switching guitars isn't an option for me on bass).
Anyone else encountered this or was this perhaps just a random fluke?
I remember having a big setlist with alternate tunings and thinking to myself "I hope the songs will be put in order by tuning". But I was wrong and I had to retune multiple times. Now I can tune from D to E & from E to D by ear so it's not so bad.
Definitely helps to be able to do that by ear! I can do it, but on bass I can't get exactly right to where the tuner registers me as "in tune." I think there might be a little bug in the bass tuner or possibly just a technical limitation that makes the bass tuner a little twitchy.
