  1. Ok here is the deal I have this stupid ass computer in front of my face for like 9 hours a day, If someone could please link me to a pic of a bass fretboard with all the notes I would have the thing memorized in like 2 days. I have it down now but it takes me a couple seconds to find say all the b's I want it to be second nature and I think this would help greatly. Thanks Funkers:D
     
  2. I thought a fretboard background was a great idea Fatfunker, so I decided to make one.
    Here you go ...
     
  3. Nice! Thank you.

    Hey george...
    Could you make another one looking from the top? you know... as if I was playing... Then I could learn it in about 1 1/2 hour... :p
     
  7. Yeah sure, what's next ? A ****in' twelve string ???The solution is very simple PC, just turn your monitor the other way round.

    :D
     
  8. Just for PC. Don't say I never did anything for you :D

    Can someone do that listing all of the hrmonic notes? That'd be cool too.
     
  10. Yeah I already did it as a .bmp file but it won't attach. I edited the one above by putting every note on there.

    Perhaps Dave Grossman will drop in and correct me if I am wrong, but here is how I interpret it.

    The diagram on the left shows all of easily played harmonic nodes on a 6 string bass, color coded so that you can determine what note you will get at what node.

    The other 2 diagrams are the keys to understanding the first diagram.

    For example, the node at the 3.67 fret on the G string, in blue, using the charts on the right, indicates that node produces an F harmonic.

    Thanks again Embellisher. I think that I've asked too hard of a question. I'll keep trying to get your chart (as the only way to learn is to try), but I still don't get it ;) .
