Duck Dunn in wrong note shocker?

Recommended Posts

What a load of rowlocks this thread is!

Does it matter?

Listen to the music, forget the bl**dy theory and remember how many of these records were listened to, sold and enjoyed over the years...

Lighten up, man. It's just a bit of discussion.

And believe me, I'm the last person to get hung up on the theory :-)

Musicians, and at a guess mostly Bassists, chatting & discussing music & Bass, specifically a Bassline line on a Bass/musicians forum is 'rowlocks' ??? :huh:

Sorry, the post just amused me, that's all :D

Duck thought so. So seemingly did a bunch of other musicians and producers on both studio dates. Plus, it sounds absolutely fine as a note choice within a great groove. I reckon that means it's appropriate.

Absolutely. But it doesn't sound fine as note choice to me, so I thought I'd open it up to see what other people think.

And I think it's continuing to be an interesting discussion.

Is that OK with you?

Why wouldn't it be?

I thought it polite to ask.

Seems like you're trying to put a full-stop on what is, and can only remain, an open-ended discussion.

There's no right/wrong, just an interesting point to mull over together.

Relax, man.

A major 6 is a very Dorian note to pick over a minor chord. As others have said the G# can come from melodic minor as well. I love making use of different notes to alter the feel of a track!

For me there are no right or wrong note choices, only better and worse choices. Each of us will pick different notes at some point, I say embrace that!
