Hey guys Im pretty new to making up my own stuff so bear with me. I made up a riff in the vein of RHCP/hendrix that starts with D5, then goes to hendrix style A major and then a hendrix style G major with little fills and stuff thrown in. I think its a really really simple progression so dont flame me for that but i dont really want a real sad sounding song, I play enough in minor scales as it is. Should I just do D major? any ideas?

Aren't those chords in G Major? I can't tell without the fretboard right now.

Nope, D major. In G major, the A would be minor instead of major (unless of course, there were accidentals).

And TS: I don't really understand your question. Do you just want another chord to place in the progression? If so, D major would work fine.
Only play what you hear. If you don’t hear anything, don’t play anything.

I just want to figure out where to play a solo for D5, A, G. I thought D major sounded right but I just didn't know. Minor just didnt sound right at all

So you wanted the key. Yeah, D major is the key.
