E - F# - A
those are your chords so just look for the minor,since they are major "chords"


just count 6 steps forwards in the major scale (of each chord might i add) & there's your minor (remember to count your sharps & flats)

for E = c minor
for F# = d# minor
for A = f# minor

you can play the minor scales in one position if you want or you can change keys along with your progression...the importance is that you emphasise the root,3d,5th & 7th of each scale to give it that flavor

you should have asked this in the "Musicians Talk" forum

is the c,d# and f# where i put the scales for each chord?

yes,while you (or your friend ) are playing the 16 E chords...solo/improv under it with a c minor

it's a c minor,remember that...not a C major which has no sharps or flats

c major - C-D-E-F-G-A-B-C
c minor - C-D-Eb-F-G-Ab-B-C

to get a minor from a major flat the third & sixth

Are you serious? Are you honestly suggesting soloing over an E major chord (the chord listed above is neither major nor minor but in fact an E5 which has no clear major/minor tonality) using a C minor scale? Did it occur to you that you're recommending a scale that doesn't even feature the tonic of the chord you're supposed to solo over? The correct relative minor of E major is C# minor. Stop confusing people.

II HaZzA II: ignore all the advice above, it will only lead you up a blind alley you do not want to enter. Basically you can think of the three chords you've listed as all belonging to the key of either E major, E minor or, possibly, A major. I would suggest that since the emphasis is on the E5 this is in the key of E major/minor so you can use either scale and it will sound OK. Start out just using E minor pentatonics and then try to throw in the odd E major pentatonic (same as C# minor pentatonic) lick here and there.

add some tonality to those root-5 chords...add a 3 and it might be a bit easier to determine the key, thus making it much more convenient for people to suggest a decent scale
