does anybody here pick a scale and only use certain noted from it to make riffs?
cuz i wanna try it but im extrtemely lazy. but i think about it as if"if i know the notes from my rifss are in this scale, i can just solo over it with the same scale".
you get me?

Listen to Iron Maiden and their harmonies. Their riffs are based on easy scales and are harmonized within the scale.

I mainly use pentatonic, though me being me, I use some outside notes if it sounds good, though I'm reading more on metal scales (which I have found some are easily manipulated into the pentatonic). Also, you can use chords. I found a cool little thing by playing individual notes in a bar chord.
