    Can someone please tell me where to get a chart on the web that will tel me the frequency of the notes on a bass? For instance, the low B is 30.8 Hz or soemthing like that. Micheal Manring used to have this on his site, butit disappeared when he revised it.

    Thanks!!

    Joris is the man! It's too bad he didn't see this thread, he probably would have been able to tell you the note frequencies just by memory!!! :D

    DId Joris ever finish the file? That is a great reference for newbies.

    Maybe I should try to contact him/her. (Gotta be PC these days.)
