Ok so I don't know much at all about music theory. I play guitar in a Deathcore band and I need to know what scales to write stuff in. Influences are The Red Shore, Suicide Silence, Waking the Cadaver, The Ophidian Ascension.

I used to be in a metalcore band and it wasn't so hard writing stuff for it now. But this band is going to be serious as all **** so I need to know.
Also. How do I work out what sweeps to do over what.

Sorry if this is in the wrong section.

Thanks in advance, Callum

Learn all your arpeggios and chord tones. Learn your major/minor/harmonic-minor/melodic-minor (in that order).

That will teach you what to do over chords and the key, what scale to use, what arpeggio to sweep.
