Often chords can be substituted for other chords and still sound good. Going to a more basic concept, what notes can be substituted for other notes?
I know a V chord could be substituted with a V7 chord so I'm guessing that in a melody the 5th scale degree could be substituted with the 2 notes of F->B in sequence.
What other kinds of note substitutions are there?

It sort of does and doesn't.

Sometimes I'll notice that two different notes can be used in the same place in a melody/riff. In this situation, I guess I could "substitute" one for the other. I don't think there are specific rules of instances I could list, but it is possible.
