5-strings can be very usefull if you want to learn songs from bands, especially newer ones (past 10 years) because they have become more available and so many mkore bassists have them now. I personally have a 4-string, and find that in order to play different bands, I often have to tune down which can be annoying. Sometimes I don't even bother - I just play an octave higher. As for when it come to creating music a 5-string can be usefull although you can easily make do without.

And haha to the tuning the B string down a step and slapping. **Plays Mudvayne's dig an octave higher**
