comment Bass Line in Frank Sinatra's Here's That Rainy Day
It's pretty difficult to tell what you mean with those notes -- could you use Noteflight to generate some notation with your intended rhythm and include it in your question as an image?

comment Note naming convention while creating scales
@StephenHazel I don't know that rule... and an augmented 5th or diminished 5th above the root is going to be the same letter as the dominant. You might be able to come up with some reliable shortcuts for simpler music that doesn't stray very far from the key signature, but for most purposes, MIDI and standard notation are not isomorphic.

comment Note naming convention while creating scales
@StephenHazel It should always work when you use it in this fashion, because the starting scale is going to have the correct pattern of note names. If you alter each note by the same number of half steps without changing the letter, then you'll still have the same pattern. (For what it's worth, you're the only person I know of who takes into consideration all 12 tones when working with a tonal key signature. You're accurate, but typically the use of chromatic pitches is so contextual that the notes may or may not be related to the key signature as such.)
