What's your favourite note on the bass?

Howdy folks!

I’ve been wondering “what is my favourite note” ever since I formed the idea that Flea (from the Red Hot Chili Peppers) seems to really love the low F-note (E-string, first fret).

The notes are arranged from the low E to D#, i.e. on the first 11 frets of the lowest string on a four string bass. :guitar:

So, let’s vote! And don’t worry, you have 12 votes. If you love them all, select them all! :metal:

  • E
  • F
  • F#
  • G
  • G#
  • A
  • Bb
  • B
  • C
  • C#
  • D
  • D#

I voted D, because D minor is the saddest of all keys.


I voted G,

Well, D is in D major too… so maybe it’s actually F, Bb or C that are your favourites :thinking:

My favourite note is the B on the 7th fret of the E string after the second verse of Come Together->first chorus of “Come together right now”-how’s that for specific.

My favourite note is any one I hit that’s the right one at the right time and doesn’t buzz!


i prefer the funky notes.

I has to be Ab or G# based on this.

I love Martin Short on SCTV!

My favorite notes are the ones that don’t suck when I play ‘em.
