Alright. I was wondering what is the best way of going about playing guitar over something like this?

Basically a rock remix of a hip hop/synth beat.

I know it isn't very common but when it's done it usually sounds fairly cool. My friend wants me to help him do this with one of his beats.

If it makes a difference he will be sending me the FL Studio files.

I guess the main piece of advice I can give there is simply utilizing space (as in, shutting up every once in a while ) and getting into a solid groove.

Well yeah but how do I know what key to play in?

Listen to the bass line in it. It goes A-F-G-C, so it ends up in the key of A, all the way through.

I didn't know the key of A had an F, G, and C naturals. News to me.

Fixed that for you.

And TC, this may help you get some ideas, although it's not exactly a hip-hop beat.

Although you mean the key of Am I get what you're saying.

Actually, I didn't mean Aminor. I just meant the key of A. The bassline progression goes A then F then G then C then back (all single notes, no chords). So the progression naturally falls in A. So yes anything played in the Aminor scale will sound good. But hey, i'm not trying to split hairs. I'm no theory expert. I've kept my knowledge of theory to a minimum in 25 years. I try to avoid too much detail, considering the nature of the question.

A has a C# and F# and G#.
