Well, I just found something. I'm practicing in a room of my basement (my family said I was too loud to play in my room), and I notice a rattling noise. I replay the last note I played (10th on the G string), and realize it's coming from behind me. I turn around, and see a radio. It sounded like it was the speaker rattling. I figure out that the note I play was an F, and try all the other F's I can think of. They all make it rattle. Someone already explained to me what it is, but has anyone else ever had something like that before? We're having band practice in that room today, so I'm gonna have our guitarist test it and see if it happens to him too.

that'll note will cause the air around to vibrate at a certain frequency/ rate, meaning when the sound wave's come into contact with the radio's speaker cone it will cause it to vibrate, since the frequency of that note is the frequency of which the speaker cone natauraly vibrate's...or something. i dont know.

i experienced something like that before but i had a button on my strap and it began to rattle :p

it´s like Daniel8488 said it has to do something with frequencies and air vibration..

Something in my bedroom rattles when I play a G (or a C, can't remember).

Same with my kitchen.

This means you are close to the brown noise. Everyone who heard it will turn to zombies soon and begin seeking human flesh. I advise leaving the area immediately.

Now, if you were to play an F# 2 octaves lower than usual on the E string for a bass...

resonance


Resonance is when air vibrates at the natural frequency of an object,which is usually a specific note, causing the object to vibrate and produce sound waves at the same frequency but quintessentially at a louder amplitude.

this sucks

Quote by sadistic_monkey
That frequency just happens to affect that object. A C# on my bass affects my friends snare drum. It's annoying.

There's a note that does that for my drummer too. He can't bring his drumset to practice, so we bought a old, loose 4 piece for him for $20 (it was supposed to be $30, but our drummer didn't bring his $10...); we haven't gotten the snare tight enough to sound right, but when I play, of course, THEN it works...

Thanks for the explanations, but like I said, someone I know already explained it to me when I showed it to him.

Constructive interference caused by resonance my dear friend.

Every object has a natural frequency that it is constantly vibrating at, if waves of that exact same frequency come into contact with that object the object will resonate and be forced to vibrate with a higher amplitude (more energy).

You sir have found the death note...when you play it, all musical devises (Such as a radio) will sound out in harmony with the note you played...THEN a week later you will die. You should trick the system by killing yourself today!

You get it on a bus too, when the engine hits a certain RPM it gets the windows resonant frequency and they rattle around in their cheaply constructed frames.
