Anyone know what kind of scale Alexi Laiho from Bodom uses? Also, any other scales that are fun to shred are cool. Please help!
If you have to ask: Theory sticky.
i would assume the pentatonic but which key depends on what chords he uses
^No, not pentatonic, not really. The shreddy guys like lots of harmonic minor, phrygian, phrygian dominant, and aeolian. Don't use these scales interchangably, however; learn where each fits.
