or just do something that sounds good. theory is great and all but when its something like that its better to just do what sounds good.

lol 08'ers.

if you just want to play something basic and melodic, all you need to do is find a chord progression that fits into one key, and then choose a scale that's part of the same key.

you could work out a chord progression first, and then work out what scale you can use, or you could choose a key and then choose some chords that fit in with it.

For instance, if you chose to play in C major or A minor (theyre the same), you could use the following chords;

Em, F, G, Am, C, Dm (3 minor chords and 3 major chords)

to be rhythmically simple, you'll probably want to choose 3 chords or 4 chords. If you choose 3 chords, youll want to follow this pattern;

chord A, Chord B, chord C, chord A | chord A, Chord B, chord C, chord A,

if you choose 4 chords, follow this one;

chord A, Chord B, chord C, chord D | chord A, Chord B, chord C, chord D,

anyway, in this key you can use any scale that fits in with them. For simple rock you might want to try C major, A minor and A minor pentatonic (although these 3 are in fact all exactly the same scale, but the pentatonic has some notes removed)

the same applies to any key.
