Na Na in Every Move I make
At .23 of this video http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_nEtq28x5EQ Having trouble deciding on the bass line for Na Na? We play it in C major. The progression for the verse is 5-1-2-1.
The progression for the chorus is 5-6-7-1.
For Na Na I'm leaning toward; 5-6-7-1-1-2-1. Suggestions welcomed.
If you mean the bridge at 1:23, they are just walking up 1-2-3-4, holding each note for 2 beats, repeat that 4 times then back to the original verse. The original is in E major, but you can transpose it to C major easily enough. I'm not hearing the verses like you do, though. I just hear a plain 1-4-5 progression, but I'd probably use some pentatonic fills to give it some bounce. I think it's a solid bassline that doesn't need a lot of stuff going on other than what's happening in the original.
If you're just looking for something different to do, that song lends itself to using a C major pentatonic. Just play what you want.
I get the chord progression for the chorus as:
|G |C |D |C |
in the key of G.
Sounds like the bass is playing a line centered mainly on these notes:
|D |G |A |G | or simply 5ths of the chords.
A bass line centered around these notes:
|D |E |F# |G | would harmonize with the I IV V IV just fine.
Just variations using roots, thirds, and fifths of the chords.
At 0:23 the bass is (assuming you're in C):
|CC FF |GG FF |
Or (numbers meaning scale degrees):
|11 44 |55 44 |
It just follows the roots, I IV V IV.
Leaving in a few minutes for first service practice. You've got me going on the right track.
EDIT - came and went so quickly it really did not matter, I think I ended up with a 1-2-1-2 something.
