    G note makes everything rumble

    You know that rattling sound the snare makes when you play a not on the guitar or what ever. It happens the loudest on a low G.
    Also I got a piano, and when I play a G note with my guitar, it makes it resonate. Also when I try different sh!tty amps too, they always seem to make that funny honking noise on G.

    I don't know what it is. I was wondering, just out of curiosity if anyone knew what it was.

    I have one theory, but it sounds a bit weak. Mains interferance in the air would be at 50Hz, and also when amps humm, or just when electronic equipment through a speaker hums, its at 50Hz, because the power supply isn't good enough, and some a.c. leaks through.

    Any ideas?

    Is that the sound of one hand clapping? I thought we'd have a bigger audience.

    No its every room. Its really quite spooky. Try it. Play the third fret on the low E and watch everything shake.

    It does depend on the room. I played a show once where Eb caused horrid feedback regardless... That was some fun wtih a 21 band eq to pull that out.

    The note is G in every room I try it in. I think its the resonant frequency of the world. Or something

    maybe its the point where sonic vibration is at its peak frequency.

    Objects rumble depending on the frequency of a sound or noise , in engineering situations i think they test machinery for vibration and design things so they dont vibrate so much, and one thing they probably try to avoid is that frequency you mentioned.

    in some sense it probably is resonant frequency of the world

    im not sure if this helps http://cheetah.imse.ksu.edu/~zpei/ul...al/effect3.htm

    im looking for more articles.
