Talkin' bout my bass
I am measuring my bass for inventory purposes and noting the dimensions of the various components on a sketch when it occurs to me that I have numbers written down for the upper bout, the C-bout and the lower bout, but I don't know what I'm talking 'bout!
Where did the word 'bout' come from as it relates to the double bass? I'm afraid our dear friend Merriam has been of no help, referring me to sports events and illness.
So there you have it: They're called bouts because they bend, and because they cause you to go on a bender. :)
