Bass

I have a question for you. How would you pronounce the word, "bass"?

Would you pronounce it bas ... like the fish?

I was corrected today after I uttered the word several times ... and had a good laugh after looking at the course description: MUSA 101 - Bass I and MUSA 101 - Bass II.

But hey--look! If I had kept going to MUSA 103 - Bassoon I and MUSA 104 - Bassoon II, I would have been closer. ;-)

Well I don't feel too bad because how many times do you think the word, "sake", as in for the sake of all students has been mispronounced in a Japanese restaurant?
