Okay, so I wrote what to me, sounds like good-old fashioned Thrashy, Slayer kinda stuff. It's in Drop B and I was just wondering, cos it's in a ****ed up scale, what key is it in?

The notes that work in the scale are:

C# - I DIDN'T PLAY ANY OF THESE STRINGS IN THE SONG. LOL.
G# - I DIDN'T PLAY ANY OF THESE STRINGS IN THE SONG. LOL.
E - I DIDN'T PLAY ANY OF THESE STRINGS IN THE SONG. LOL.
B - 0, 1, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 11, 12, 13, ....
F# - 0, 1, 3, 5, 6, 8, 10, 12, 13, ....
B - 0, 1, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 11, 12, 13, ....

Anywho, I don't know much about music theory, scales, keys etc. but I can play alright.

So, can anyone tell me what scale it's in? I was thinking like some Chromatic or something.

Yup, chromatic, that's why it sounds like Slayer.

its USUALLY the first note/last note in th song.. good music theory implies that the note you begin in should also be the note you end on. not everyone does that though
either way its bad - i dont know animals

looks like F# locrian which is the 7th mode of G major/E minor


i think its B locrian, since the notes on the F# string are fifths. so yea, F# locrian with a bit of cromatic work going on.
you know, ive owned 8 different guitars over my lifetime, and right now i have 3. i wanna know what the hell happened...i mean the picks and cables are understandable, they disappear into thin air all the time, but guitars?
