well i love harmonized guitars, and i like to write stuff harmonized...but i dont know how to do it.
i usually just mess around until it sounds good. but i have a friend that can harmonize with me when we jam right on the spot, which i cant.
do i just have to remember the thirds/sixths/whatever else of that note?

ex.
if i play an _ in a _ minor scale...a third will be _
that kind of thing?

Yeah well, you can always harmonize a 5th above or a 4th below, it don't take too long to think about that and jam on it. But for 3rds, it takes me a acouple of run-throughs

yea me too.
i know 5ths, duh..its a power chord basically.

but i mess around for a while until it sounds right.
so i have to memorize the internals for each mode/scale?

so as long as i am in the same key and scale and stuff, i can play whatever i want (same timing and stuff of course)?

but it could sound bad of course, but if you like it and it contains notes that dont make sense, just go for it

My simplified version of harmonizing a fixed interval

You just have to know what scale you're playing in and then move the pattern of the notes you're playing X notes up (by the actual names or even just in a box pattern)

example:
A minor (A B D C D E F G A)

you play A E B C
D-------2---------------------
A---0-------2---3----------------


you want the thing harmonized in thirds
A becomes C (A -> B -> C)
E become G (E -> F -> G)
B become D (B -> C -> D)
C becomes E (C -> D -> E)

so the harmonized bit is C G D E
G-------------0------------------------------
D--------------------0---2---------------
A---3----------------------------------


also for harmonzing in fifths you can kind of get away with just placing a power chord on every note
