    Well, you're pretty wrong.
     

  7. Those are both a frequency for an E. The 165 is two octaves up from the low E (open E) on a bass.
     
  8. yes, but the question stated *open* E.

    I read somewhere that it's not the fundamental frequency that you 'hear', the ear responds to the 2nd and 3rd harmonic??
