comment With respect to right hand guitar technique, what does it mean to not scoop?
music.stackexchange.com/questions/20637/what-is-a-flat-wrist -- I think that this is a similar idea in the context of bass guitar.

comment Classical examples of a 'fifth voice' or 'ghost soprano'
@jjmusicnotes This should probably be moved to chat -- this is my understanding of what is going on: combination tones do not exist /in the air/ (or more generally as any kind of mechanical oscillation). What is going on is that the pattern-matching mechanisms in the ear & brain detect 2f (and it's overtones -- this is the octave avbove) and 3f (and its overtones, this is one fifth above the 2f pipe) with the net result that the listener subjectively perceives that the pitch of that sound is 1f. This also underlys the way that church bells are tuned.

@jjmusicnotes here's a nice discussion of it: pykett.org.uk/resultantbass.htm#Introduction albeit with electronic organs. I might have an appropriate reference at home.

Your description of combination tones for pipe organs is wrong -- it's two pipes at different pitches (usually a note and a fifth above), and thus different lengths, to produce the effect of a lower pitch.
