Hi all, I hope I am not asking a question that has been asked already. If I have have please point me to that thread so I can read it. However, I have been reading about the circle of fifths but I do not understand it's application, why I need to know it, and how to use it to it's fullest. I have been told I've been using it all the time, but I just don't understand the theory behind it, and all that I should use it for. Can someone please assist me in understanding it? Also, I am trying to get an understanding of soloing on the bass. I really want to perfect this skill so if anyone can give me some direction it would be much appreciated. Do I need to know the circle of fifths to solo? etc.
