I was messing around on my guitar and found a half-way decent riff. Needless to say, I jumped all over it. It was originally like this. (god i hope this works)
e----------------3--2-------------------------------
B---3-2----3-3--------3---------------------------
G--------3------------------------------------------
D---------------------------------------------------
A---------------------------------------------------
E---------------------------------------------------

I then realized that I was playing pretty close to the G major scale. I changed a note to fit the scale and it sounded better, and the two D's in a row was kind of weird. It became like this.
e----------------3--2-------------------------------
B---3-2----2-3--------3---------------------------
G--------2------------------------------------------
D---------------------------------------------------
A---------------------------------------------------
E---------------------------------------------------

After a bit of messing around, I finally changed the last D to a C#.
I noticed how many C#'s there were and was wondering, would this still fit in the same scale/key? And if not, which scale/key would it?

yes it would. /thread



Not quite that simple.


Threadstarter, this isn't in G major, unfortunately.
Don't tell me what can not be done

Don't tell me what can be done, either.



I love you all no matter what.

edit : i would call that B minor, but the relative scale would be D,i'd spell it out

D,E,F#,G,A,B,C#

i can't thinkof the specific scale name for it at this time maybe nightwind or one of the other theory experts can advise
