A bit of a randomquestion but then again I am a random bassist but what is your favourite bass note? The note that oozes with bassness (?) and makes you come to life when you hear it.

I just love the sound of an open A turned up to 11 (aaah Spinal Tap...).
Bb or F, or, played together...

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

TL;DR: Saw a girl at Wal-Mart, she started feeling me up, I jizzed in my pants.

Shit, I'm so pathetic.

[quote="'[BurnTheDusk"]']I agree, tone does sound better the closer your genitals are to the ground.

E, 12th fret on the E string. when i play it loud enough in my friend's basement, you think the whole house might collapse.
Slap a bass, not a ho.

It's an awesome note.

G. best whe you do E-3 and G-0 at the same time.
F# is fun though.

I wouldn't call what we have here on the Bass Forum a mentality. It's more like the sharing part of an AA meeting.

when the guillemots singer appeared on never mind the buzzcocks (tv show in uk :P) he said their double bass player found the perfect bass note to give a girl an orgasm, but wouldn't tell anyone what it is. maybe when we find out, that could be a new universal favourite XD

Pretty much anything in the key of E. C# is pretty cool, so I'll go with that.
Quote by slap-a-bass
lets go conquer neighboring frets and make our D bigger for all to fear

lets D-estroy all other notes

get it?


Quote by IndianRockStar
As Tom Morello says, when you want to rock, go to F#. I do this too.

+1, F# is my favourite key because of Rage actually, it's just amazing, but I think my favourite note is F.

EDIT: Sammcl pretty much got it dead on.
I like the A note, 5th fret on the E string. And also the F# on the E string, (2nd fret).

I dont really like open strings, you cant bend them and stuff. The only time I like them is when you slap and you start with a quick E or A and then go really fast to playing something.

TS: cool question!
C# on a low B *drools*. Clearly dominant to this F#.
