Plenty of RHCP songs, to the best of my knowledge. Californication comes to mind, but it's in the relative minor(A). There's more, I just can't think of them right now.

Exactly what I was going to suggest. I get chills every time I listen to that song.
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.

Yeah, hence why I said there were others. I know it was a bad example, I just couldn't think of something else. Forgive me!

Well I have a song in C major, so it's relative minor isn't going to work, I just want to get a jist of how to work around with the C scale, so I can write an actual studio solo, then just **** around live

I'll admit it was a bad example.

BUT(unrelated to my bad example), rather than getting an idea of working with the C major scale, at least on guitar, your goal should be more geared to working with the major scale, possibly using C as a "gateway" scale since it's so convenient. Just my opinion.

Ah so you want to get some examples of riffs in C major and try to put them over this song.


I like just jamming through the various pentatonic modes when I'm trying to make stuff up. It seems the non-pentatonic notes in the key are useful mostly for transitions or quick runs and stuff.

Maybe that's not helpful...

not quite, I just want to see how some people use C major and certain notes over others and apply to my own theory

Warm Regards by Vai is in C Major.

One of my favorite Vai pieces.
