it could seem quite silly, but I often unconsciously associate colors, things and smells with notes...for example, D is green and tastes like grass for me. And G is yellow with a strong sun smell. And E is blue, a little bitter. And A=red, sweet and dense like honey. Ahahah I know that it makes no sense...

You are the first person who I've heard say that D is green. And I've believed this from the beginning and no one has believed me.

Yes but is also a way to associate letters to colors. If you thing in Englsh G could be yellow....if you think in your language (italian for example G = SOL ) it could be blue... There is a reason beetween sound, shape, combination of these, maybe your G is yelliow because Yellow in italan is "Giallo". There are simple or compliacted combinations and i belive we can find the best esample in the poem " SESANSTIONS" By A.Rimbaud

Ze I have colours too but completely different, D is blue, A is White, B is grey (in our theory B is H we call Bflat as B) C is yellow. We could make a patent for childrens instruments - something like Loudness Convention

BTW I've discovered that I have a bunch of tracks with keys Csharp, D sharp and others weird. When I have old strings, my guitar stays tuned better when it's down one semi-tone So as V said C is for rich people with new strings. BUT Now I have a cure for it - boiling strings in water with citric acid

boiling could clean the oxide, but it doesnt heal the fret wounds...

btw, i ve got a bass with strings bought in 1998. I am happy keeping it tuned 2 whole steps down (C, F, Bb, Eb)...your old strings theory could be an explnation

eta: ahahah what a shame playing with 14 years strings...but some tones i get from it are unachievable with new ones

^ Guitar strings are cheap but for bass not Without boiling they stay fresh 2-3 weeks when you play a lot
