I'm not sure if this goes in bass or if it's more general music, but what notes don't exist on the scales we use? I've heard it's F#/Gb and B#/Cb, but I just wanted to make sure that's true.

Technically, they do. Every note "exists", we just don't name them that way very often. They're all enharmonic, so E#=F, and B#=C.


That's what I've heard anyway...I may be wrong...heh

Schecter C-1+ w/ Seymour duncan Jazz (neck) and Full Shred (bridge), with Sperzels

The notes still exisit, but:

Fb is simply E, E# is simply F, Cb is simply B, and B# is simply C

Depending on the scale, some may use say, Cb instead of B, I can't remember which scale has an example, but I'm sure someone will either beat me to this post or have the scale that does after.

it depends entirely on the key you're playing in. Different keys have different notes. Of course there are pieces of music with the notes you've listed in them. B# sounds the same as C, Cb sounds the same as B, but in different pieces of music you might play something notated as B# or Cb, it certainly does happen.

They all exist how else would you play something in C# Major or a diminished F chord?

yeah if you see Fb/Cb/E#/B# it's to avoid confusion - that way if you had a sequence that went C-C#-C-C#-C-C# and you notated it, you wouldn't need 3 #'s and 3 natural signs, you could just write B-C-B-C-B-C and the key signature would tell you to play B#'s and C#'s
