    It seems there's an increasing awareness on TB that the low E note is 41hz, the low B is 31.5hz (the brown note).

    Here's an idea, lets stop calling the notes after the letter of the alphabet but instead call out the frequency - just to confuse the guitarist.

    Guitarist:- "Hey what key is "Hurt So Good" in?"

    Bass:- "220hz!"

    That'll stuff em! :)
