    Hey guys im doing the perfect pitch ear training supercourse and the instructor said to play an F# concert pitch. What is an F# concert pitch is it just a F#? and through out the video when he talks about the notes like Eb and stuff is the note he talks about the same note you play on bass?

    F# concert is F# on a bass. The notes in the video are the notes to be played on bass; :)

    "Concert pitch" refers to absolute pitch. Like middle C, concert pitch. To play this concert pitch on a bass guitar, you would have to play what is notated for you the note one octave higher (bass sounding one ocatve lower than written), it varies with different instruments, like Bb tenor sax (write it up a 9th to get the same concert pitch) or other Bb and Eb horns. Concert pitch is the actual pitch you're going for, what it may be called on your axe may be different.
