RG was probably trying to take the context into account. The query
was about designing fx pedals, and there’s no way (or reason) to
maintain high precision on eq center points or whatever. (What *are*
you doing, anyway, Ryan?)

So…here’s a chart of bass and guitar frequencies:

E = 41.20 hz <- E string on bass F = 43.65 hz F# = 46.25 hz G = 49.00 hz G# = 51.91 hz A = 55.00 hz <- A string on bass A# = 58.27 hz B = 61.74 hz C = 65.41 hz C# = 69.30 hz D = 73.42 hz <- D string on bass D# = 77.78 hz E = 82.41 hz <- low E string on guitar F = 87.31 hz F# = 92.50 hz G = 98.00 hz <- G string on bass G# = 103.83 hz A = 110.00 hz <- A string on guitar A# = 116.54 hz B = 123.47 hz C = 130.81 hz C# = 138.59 hz D = 146.83 hz <- D string on guitar D# = 155.56 hz E = 164.81 hz F = 174.61 hz F# = 185.00 hz G = 196.00 hz <- G string on guitar G# = 207.65 hz A = 220.00 hz A# = 233.08 hz B = 246.94 hz <- B string on guitar C = 261.63 hz C# = 277.18 hz D = 293.66 hz D# = 311.13 hz E = 329.63 hz <- high E string on guitar F = 349.23 hz F# = 369.99 hz G = 392.00 hz G# = 415.30 hz A = 440.00 hz A# = 466.16 hz B = 493.88 hz C = 523.25 hz C# = 554.37 hz D = 587.33 hz D# = 622.25 hz E = 659.26 hz <- high E string at 12th fret F = 698.46 hz F# = 739.99 hz G = 783.99 hz G# = 830.61 hz A = 880.00 hz A# = 932.33 hz B = 987.77 hz C = 1046.50 hz C# = 1108.73 hz <- that's it for 21-fret guitars D = 1174.66 hz D# = 1244.51 hz E = 1318.51 hz <- unless you have a 24-fret guitar

Buy the Book!

I cleaned up my tab for Sonny Boy's Help Me and made it into a short book. There's a Kindle version for 99 cents, and if you buy the paperback you get the Kindle free.

Playing "Help-Me" In the Style of Sonny Boy Williamson II: A step by step, note for note analysis of some of Sonny Boy's Signature Riffs

I also write Science Fiction, so you can sample some of my best stories. Also available in Kindle format.

I began collecting data about the microphones used by blue harp players before there was an internet. I began organizing it into JT30.com in the late 1990s. I accumulated more stuff than I remember. This is some of it.
