mmm, probably A minor, mixed with A diminished, or uhh, i forget the name of this, its a mode of melodic minor though:

1 2 b3 4 b5 b6 b7 1
in tabs that would be:
A-0-2-3-5-6-8-10-12-

Looks like A phrygian.
Someones knowledge of guitar companies spelling determines what amps you can own. Really smart people can own things like Framus because they sound like they might be spelled with a "y" but they aren't.

looks like A, blues major scale-- so its pentatonic with a flattend 5th.

so how you play it depends on how it will feel.


if you want it to feel really dark and gothic- accent that D#

if you want it to feel really, classic rockish- accent the pentatonic form of it.
"i disagree, I play on my own and if I had to play through my avt for another minute I'd probably poke a fork into the input, with the hope of both electrocuting myself and destroying the amp in one fell swoop."
