Join Jared Meeker for an in-depth discussion in this video The key of B flat, part of Bass: Teach Yourself.
- Awesome, so we checked out the key of F.…Let's move on to a new key.…So, here we go to B flat,…and this has an additional flatted note,…and that is to E flat, so the only two flats…are B flat and E flat.…So, that's just written in the key signature,…and throughout the entire piece, keep that mind.…So, are you guys ready?…Let's check out this next example.…Here we go.…(rhythmic tapping)…(bass guitar music and drumming)…All right, great job you guys.…
So, we just played the B flat major scale.…And now let's move on to the moderate jazz blues in B flat.…So, you'll also see here natural signs…that will cancel out the flat signs…that are in the key signature.…Now, all these naturals, flats…and sharps are all called accidentals.…So, an accidental applies to any of those…three different types of symbols.…So, let's check out this next example,…and I hope you have fun with it.…
Here we go.…(rhythmic tapping)…(slow jazz music)…
