do you apply scales to writing music? and how do you know which notes to use in a certain order?

Notes are your letters, scales are like your paragraphs, and solo's are storys written by your scales. So when you are making a solo, it's very much like writing a book. You have a story flowing using notes, scales, modes ect, chords. write a song like you are telling a story. Do what sounds rite, let your creative side do the writing and the technical side do the playing.

Well, for instance, if you had a progression that went like

|| Dmaj7 | Amaj7 :||

Now, lest figure out the notes.

Dmaj7 : D F# A C#

Amaj7 : A C# E G#

Now. We take the notes and figure out the scale. Since it starts with a D, then the key will be in D.

These are the notes we need: D E F# G# A C#

We can either put a B natural or a B# (enharmonic to C). But, if we put a B#(C), we'll then have B#(C) - C# - D. Really, it doesn't really work well with 3 half steps in a row.

So then we'll take the B natural.

Our final scale is: D E F# G# A B C# ( D lydian, 1 2 3 #4 5 6 7)

I'm not sure if thats what you're asking though.

which notes come first... i don't really know how to say it... i don't know that much about music theory... like... how do you know what note to start with, then what note you would put second, third, etc.

Ok. Intervals. I'm not really a pro at them, so I suggest that you check out the MT FAQ. Good stuff.

Are you asking how to write a melody?
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.

If you mean what notes come first like, "Should I play E first, then A, then F#?" Well, that's part of the fun when writing stuff. There is no set way to order the notes. You call all the shots and make it sound the way you want to.
