I was told by my friend all my songs are in D. And I write Melodic hardcore... and i was told Minor scales are..Sadder, more melodic?

And i was wondering which scales are similar, and how they can be used to make melodic sad hardcore... I dont knowif you understand what im saying

Thanks in advance

D minor is the saddest of all keys. People weep instantly when they hear it.

no such thing as a sad scale. people tend to think of minor chords and scales as sad because they sound less resolved than a major scale or chord. the minor has tension in it so musicians use that when playing songs that deal with some sort of tension in the emotion, like sadness. but ive heard major scale and major progressions sound sad. why? because even a major scale has tension in the scale that needs to be resolved. so its really more about how you use that than the scales you use. i could play a minor progression but make my solo not have as many tension creating phrases so it wont sound as "sad".

i think the more you do it, the more you'll come across little things that will help you express what you want to express. oh, and im guessing all your songs are in D because you are in drop D? if thats true, try different tunings or just dont always play drop D. plus, you can still play in a drop tuning and not play in that specific key of the tuning. just dont resolve to whatever note your lowest string is tuned too.

I personally like the sound of D minor, but E minor sounds a bit more melancholy to me. A minor can be when used right.

Yeah. Isn't 'I Love My Parents' by Buckethead in C Major? I'm not very good with working out key but all the notes were in C Major. or A Minor. Gahhhhhh.

Minor, harmonic minor

Scales and chords themselves have little to do with it. Adagio for strings is a major progression and thats arguably one of the saddest songs in existence

i would actually argue Ave Maria as saddest song written, but thus is the subjectivity of music

I think we should have a sticky similar to the modes one. it seems like everyone wants to learn the magic scale that makes them better. really it's the same situation as modes.


advice: if you have to ask then just stick to major and minor, and maybe harmonic/melodic minor
