Hi, I've been studying scales, chords, and progressions for a while now... Though, when I plug in the three together, my basslines seem cheesy... I am trying to create sad mellow lines but they always come out sounding happy and cheesy. I recently stumbled upon patterns, are they essential? I never quite understood what to use in my basslines... (root, third, fifths, sevenths) is there an order or way to plot them in a systematic way or do you just put down anything? Any help please?
