Hey i just started playing bass for my church and i was wondering about a couple of things. All i'm supposed to do is play the root of the chord. Now, on the sheet it says Em7. If i'm playing the root, should i just play E. Or should i play Eb or what? Please explain what i should play and why i should play it. Also, it says Dsus on another part. Once again, do i just play D as the root? WHY? Also, the instructor was talking about soloing and he said to learn the penatonic scale. I know i should know this scale but i don't. Is this a primary scale used for soloing? ALso, what is the blue's scale why we are at it? I have a bass teacher i guess we just kind of overlooked scales and that is a problem! I'll go talk to him about it the next time i see him but in the meantime can you guys help me out? Thanks a lot, we are starting a little church band and i think this will help me out with reading music and getting more into theory. ANy suggestions are apprecaited, thanks in advance.
