its e or e minor...7 fret on A is E


It's in A minor. The first note is an A. E is the perfect 5th of A, and the rest of the notes (G D and B) all fit into the A minor scale.
(natural) A minor scale: A B C D E F G A

(natural) E minor scale: E F# G A B C D E
It could be in E minor, but there aren't enough notes, particularly the missing F# that would really let us know. But I have a strong feeling that if you were to keep writing stuff for that F (8th fret A string) would sound a lot than F# (9th fret).

You're not going to get very far by asking people to make stuff up for you. That's not different at all from learning other band's basslines.

Here's a practical suggestion. When I'm in a rut at making a bassline, especially to fit a track I sing what I think should be played. Yep, you heard me... sing.

Most of us here are probably more "experienced" in coming up with stuff in our heads and singing it, than playing it. Until you get to that level, singing parts is a great way for coming up with stuff your fingers wouldn't normally play at first sight.

Exactly the same thing that I do, TS, listen to this man!

Now I even sing (in my head, not out loud) a bassline to a song I'm listening to, thinking of how I would play it rather than copying their way.

I'm going to go with blatant refusal on this one too. Dude, its not that hard to make up your own basslines. Search for all the other threads on this topic (MANY threads) and follow the advice there.

This all seems a bit suspicious, and I'd prefer not to have someone rip off my parts.
