I Like Bands like Converge, The chariot, Stray from the path, Terror, The ghost inside ect. Mostly really heavy Mathcore and Melodic hardcore. I know the Pentatonic minor scale already, any suggestions on what to learn next?

I say, no scales. Minor is good, but, to make music your going to need more, much more, than scales
Understand nothing, in order to learn everything.

I can write a coherent tune ... But 3/4? I play rock, not polka.

The major, Minor and chromatic scales are really all you'll ever need for any style, don't be afraid to hit notes outside of the scale you're using.

gotcha griff

learn some protest the hero or something and figure out what they're doing, if you only know the minor pentatonic you're probably really far from the technical ability to play most mathcore though considering how ridiculously it's written. i haven't heard any of the bands you listed though, just TDEP, fall of troy, and protest

You should use the I-hate-you scale.


Here's the scale shape:



...modes and scales are still useless.

These threads are pretty silly. Here's a simple guide:

Q: Can you tell me what scale to play for [insert genre here].

Answers:

- Major and minor scales

- How many full songs can you play?

- Duh i tink dhey allz plyz phrigrn!

- Learn no scales!

- Music theory is ghey!

- Musical elitism.
And no, Guitar Hero will not help. Even on expert. Really.
