Hey all, my buddy has written a cool traditional song and I'm inspired to write a bassline for it. My first time writing something on my own and my theory is shaky at best. Got one idea so far and I'd like to bounce it off some brains before proceeding any further. The tune is in D, 4/4. The first two lines of the verse use the progression: D F#m Em A My initial idea is to descend from the root of the 1st three chords and then walk up from the A to the D in the next line. Something like: D B A G F# D# C# B E C# B Ab A B C C# Am I on the right track or should I just stay at my day job?
