The other day a bass buddy from another country was mentioning that for her it was enough for her to know the intervals (not the scales) because she would say:
"a fifth is always a fifth where ever you are and this is what the other musicians tell you like -play a third down from me- "
This made me question myself about having understood well the lesson 2 from Module 5 so I went back there. I did not want to make a big comment there and confuse the beginner-beginners…
It seems we have been using intervals almost always on the scale forms. That particular SKA song goes simply up and down the A Minor scale like root+3rd+3rd+3rd and root+2nd+2nd+2nd which sounds really simple and cool like that.
And now that I am thinking it could have been also going up and down the A string would it still be a minor scale that way? or is the shape of the hand is kinda what makes it what it is since we can move it around that way?
Listening that particular song made me also super interested with SKA music. Looks simple enough to improvise just walking up and down like that. Are there any musicians that you guys can suggest for inspiration?
