Your Favourite Note- time to reveal all

Recommended Posts

My favourite is D.

I thought this was alone in this. It seemed daft and illogical when I first found I like 1 note over the others. Thanks for posting.

D on the B string.

I can see where you're coming from, but it has to be C# for me.

Cheeky, but not impertinent...a smooth finish with overtones of wood and warm copper

But is that at 440Hz rather than 432Hz? :ph34r:

440, but I tune to cps rather than Hz for that vintage tone.

Every bass line I hear and like appears to be in A, ideally on the 5th fret on the E string. At a pinch I do enjoy an E flat on the A string

Bb. A string first fret. You cant tell me that's not a pukka note.

Dunno. I like Bb too, but prefer it at 6th fret on the E string; got a bit more meat to it.

Mine is G. I feel empowered and strong when I play it. It makes me happy

What's your fave?

Staggered to see that it's only Horse and me who realise that G is the well-spring, the motherlode, the key to it all, along with (of course) being The People's Key.

This is the best note !

The Chicken, played in Bb works best and it suits horn players down to a tee.

Makes it easy to play all of those jacoisms too.

When I was a callow youth it was open E - nobody else in the band can get this low, I rule!

At some point I gravitated to low G. But lately I've been loving the resonance and harmonics of G, fifth fret on the D string. That little bit more refined, less boomy, a classier kind of G.

E, definitely E....no, D.... or maybe Bb....
[/quote]

Or perhaps it's F# ..... no, I think it might be G after all :)
