Hi Im sorry if the answer to this is already on the message board. Ive looked for a long time, and nothing helps. Ive started playing bass recently. Ive learned the places of the notes on the fret board. What I want to now learn is how to add extra notes to a song. If I play a song with the chords in front of me, i play the root note of each chord, its VERY boring. I want to learn how to add notes, but ive looked everywhere and I cant find out how to. I assume it has to do with scales. But I cant figure out what I must to add extra notes. Do I get the key of the song? of the scale of the chords? Im completely lost. Can anyone help ?
