    I was looking for a chart that had the frequencies of each note on the bass. Wanting to know which range I want to dial in on the EQ. Of course, the ear is really the best tool for that, and of course there are all of the overtones that really make the notes come alive, but I wanted a general guide for the frequency ranges along different parts of the neck on different strings.

    I created this chart for a 5-string bass (sorry 6-stringers) and only up to the 15th fret. I rarely play beyond the 15th fret and was more interested in frequencies up to the 12th fret or so.

    Here's the link. I think you ought to be able to download it here:
