I am working on the different difficulties for the bass guitar tracks for one of our songs, and have hit a snag. The guidelines say that motion must be preserved, but then talks about changing one of the notes in a verse so that motion is preserved into the chorus; doesn't this mean motion is not being preserved within that verse?
Anyway, here is what my section looks like in medium:
Intro: G G G G
Verse: R Y R G R Y B B
Now, obviously I have to squeeze this into 3 notes for easy, but I'm unable to preserve motion in doing so. The R for the start of the verse has to be higher than the G from the intro, and everything in the verse is one note away from each other based on pitch.
I could change the last Y in the verse to a G (and the B's to Y's, of course) which would preserve motion between the G and the Y, but would mean I was going from a R to a G while the music went up in pitch!
