Do the notes of a bass line always have to match the chords?
What I mean is: If the bass line is B, C, B, G, for example, are you then restricted to some form of B, C, B, and G for the chords?
I’m new to song writing, and often get the bass line given to me for me to write guitar to it. So far, it never works unless I stick slavishly to the same notes. Or am I being too narrow-minded?
