Ok, im doing a peice in ternery (ABA) (for the record it is a fast tempo in A and then slows down for B) and for the A section i have this riff similar to 'Curve' by John Petrucci. I use an E lydian Scale over it and although i have idea's for a B section, its quite hard to link it with something from lydian. I wanted to use this E major chord progression which goes E, D, A - very simple but its good to use an E major appegio over it and i've got some good licks to go with it. The problem with this is that it sounds quite different to the main section A. Is there anyway i can get a contrasting section which will still sound like the same song ?

um....i think ABAs binary form. And traditionally theres a key change for the B section. So the domaint of B maj is F# major, so maybe you could develop your piece in F# major for you B section. And since its GCSE your B section can be quite contrasting, its not especially important, as long as its notated nicely.

no, ABA is ternary form

Quick question, how are you recording and notating this piece ?

erm, i'll record it by using a small mixing desk into the computer, record the drums, then bass guitar etc...

Because the main riff (part A) is lydian based (sharped 4th) it's quite difficult contrasting it melodically and then making it easy enough to link it back to A again. I find going to the dominant doesn't really fit, unless i use a different set of chords.

Binary is just AB.

EDIT: And maybe get Guitar Pro? You can print off the piece as standard notation, and export it as a midi file.
