@howard is correct. If you have a 5 string, you have a little more real estate to work with and can play just about anything on it. As an example, on my cover of Lyin’ Eyes I banged away on the B string extensively with my Yammie BB735. Randy Meisner played a 4 string exclusively, but I just made my own version of the bassline using many of those notes on the B string, all the way up to the A in the 11th fret. Look and listen here; if you watch you can see me on that B string a lot.
The point is, you are not limited to certain songs or genres because you play a fiver.
