Sometimes when I’m looking at guitar chords for songs, I see stuff like C9 chord. I looked it up and a ninth is basically a 2nd interval plus one octave.
I imagine that it goes all the way through the second octave to a 15th at the next octave. . Is this kind of knowledge useful for bass players to know? Like do people say “try playing a flat 11th” when referring to a flat third plus an octave in a minor chord?
In the major scale, I got the basic major scale shapes down but once I hit the first octave, that’s it. I get stuck. Would it be very beneficial to learn/practice/memorize the positions of scale notes over two octaves to give yourself more of a musical vocabulary when playing lines in a certain key? Anybody do this already? I really think that my next breakthrough with bass is going to come from playing more positions on the neck and being able to move around more freely.
