We (Me and my band) are starting to try and mess around in teh folk metal genre. So, not knowing much other than how cool it sounds, what scales/modes/chords would help me get more of a folk sound? Im looking to write stuff from Moonsorrow to Ensiferum and Korpiklaani.
Any suggestions at all?
Come up with catchy folk melodies, and play them ontop of really heavy guitar progressions, with blastbeats?
