f# is the note 0 is the octave

to put it into perspective a bass is tuned to E1 and a guitar to E2, middle C is C4

What's complicated about that?

F#0

F# = The Note.

0 = The octave.

...

i doubt that the helpful poster above can make it much simpler.

0 = very low octave. and 1 would be an octave higher, and so on. make any sense?

So according to this theory bands like Rage Against The Machine are bound to leave the ladies dripping with pleasure?

it's that simple, if you don't understand that F# is a note and 0 (the number zero) is the octave in which that note is played then i pity you and any band you're in. music theory doesn't get much easier than that.

tom morello is about 2 octaves too high

timmy c might be able to pull it off because he's an octave lower and then uses a subharmonic generator to create tones an octave lower again.

yes providing you can keep enough tension on the B string to make an audible note

Would a Warwick Vampyre bass work then? Its tuned F# B E A as far as I know.

That would be fine, if you had a Whappo Grande 21" speaker to handle the note.

Be sure to rape the blue note (augmented 4th). Rape it hard and exploit it like the skank it is.

Hmm, what about a detuned bass + octave pedal so the strings aren't too wobbly, and I get to the note.

F# is nothing, Try and play the brown note. I live in a 20 floors apartment, and I'm gonna crank my amp up and play the brown note. The whole area is gonna smell like crap

don't know why you'd detune the bass, an octave down pedal on the F# on the 2nd fret E string would suffice

I just bought a magnetic piston that vibrates to bass frequencies instead of a subwoofer for my home theatre. You feel the explosions from movies and the bass from music without actually hearing it. I used to live in the dormatories and for some reason all the girls that I was friends with (and some that I wasn't) kept coming to sit on my couch and listen to bassy songs.

Sounds pretty funny right? I'm not kidding.

*edit: and somehow my roomate still didn't manage to pickup a girlfriend--lost cause.

just because a song is in the key of F# doesn't mean it can make a girl orgasm. it has to be in the right octave

Man, with that user name, it's so typical it isn't even funny. Way to be a super-duper stereotype...

Anyway, maybe the UG celebrity whose usually seen in threads like this from time to time, Jauqo III-X, can answer this question.

Am I the only one who knows quite a bit about eigenfrequencies and thinks this whole concept is just ****ing stupid and impossible? I could go on and on about why this isn't feasible.

OK, impossible may not have been the best word I was looking for - infeasible sounds more like it. The whole notion of a bass note giving an instant orgasm implies that there's a eigenfrequency (a frequency at which an object starts to vibrate and resonate further, aka resonant frequency) for a clitoris.

Think about it like this: a glass shatters when it's eigenfrequency is played at a certain volume. It vibrates at many other frequencies until the glass shatters. This is what you're proposing would happen to a clitoris to induce an orgasm. That's the only way F# would be the note and not any other note. You're saying F# is the eigenfrequency of a clitoris.

If it is, it would result in a rather violent and unpleasant vibration of a very, very sensitive area - which is apparently as sensitive as your nose. It'd be like putting your nose in a belt sander. Does that sound appealing?

Not only that, it doesn't have to be a LOW F# to be an eigenfrequency. Here's an example - fret the second fret of your D string and hit the low E as hard as you can. Now, notice that the D string is vibrating, even though you didn't pluck it? Notice the G and A aren't? Notice it works the other way around? Come on folks - use your (10 year old) heads.

But, we're making the assumption that F# (OCTAVE IRRELEVANT) is the eigenfrequency in question. If it isn't, it's not a lower note that'll cause the most stimulation - it's the highest note on the thickest string possible. Turn off your compressor. Play an open low B. Now, play a low B at the 12th fret. Notice the world is about to end? That's more likely to do the job than the bull**** F#0 string.

Sticky this thread. I don't want to ever have to read something like this again.

EDIT: Oh, and we're under the assumption that you have a cab that can play the fundamental perfectly. If you don't, you're hypothesis just goes out the window, doesn't it? If you want to spend the $2000 on a Whappo Grande, you can spend the cash on a nice suit or something and perhaps not need the F#.

Well, the last 4 years of my life have been pretty much centred around the bass and Computer Science, so that explains that.
