I am trying to expand my musical repertoire / knowledge.
I have a very basic understanding of major scales and the related modes but that is really where my knowledge starts to end, I am hoping someone more knowledgeable can help me understand why these two scales play nicely together (in my opinion of course).
I am playing an A major bassline. I then play a lead line in C#major/minor and this lights my ears up! (highly subjective of course)
I don't understand why this works, could anyone take the time to explain? There are some shared notes, these sound lovely to end on, the whole sound has a kind of exotic feel, I can't put it into words honestly, my musical vocabulary isn't that good, but I am willing to learn.
If needed I have an absolutely ego smashingly bad recording of me playing over a very rough bassline thrown together in 2 minutes I can add.
I figured an example would really help! This is where I heard the sound, it's awful - you will not like it - dont say I didnt warn you!! I've tried to link it at 0:59 in the video as the jokes end, and, they blaze into this A major bassline with the sax doing some kind of c# major minor thing!
Forgive me it's the first time I've heard this combination of scales / sounds and it's blown my little head wide open, am desperate for info on why this works.
