The chord progression I'm playing for a song is F#, F, D#, B.
Now let's say I wanted to write a riff or possibly a short solo for the song, what scale would I be playing?! Been playing guitar for a while but I've just delved into theory now..

Thanx in advance!

Those all major chords? Because not one scale fits them all. You can try maybe the F# pentatonic but that's the best I can suggest.

Actually, if those were all power chords then you could pull it off with the F# major scale. But that F should then technically be called E#.

They are powerchords actually.. so F#Major it is?

F# isn't in F major at all... (to matt)


No, but F is in F# major, kinda.

Theory is descriptive, not prescriptive.

theory states 1+1=2 sometimes in music 1+1=3.

Might I suggest on the "F" (E#) powerchord that you raise the 5th? It's more in key that way and might be a little more consonant. Totally up to you, just throwing it out there.
