A Beginners Guide To Music Theory - Scales
In the second of our Beginners Guide to Music Theory series we look at using scales to create a bassline. We show you the difference between major and minor scales and the formula used to work these out. We then move on to create a bassline using the scales, insert passing notes and finally using notes not in the scale within the bassline.
