What are the best scales or modes to play in? Like the intro to selkies by between the buried and me, and of course the stuff dream theater puts out. I am well capable of playing that style of music, i can cover it and play their material but when I try to write my own stuff i ALWAYS, ALWAYS end up writing in a friggin pentatonic scale and it just sounds like a southern metal song. Which isn't a bad thing, but i'd like to get a different sound.

please read the rules of the forum. if you want to discuss lyrics and overall songwriting go to the Songwriting & Lyrics Technique sub forum, if you want more specific music theory questions go to the Musician Talk forum.
