The name says it. Which scales should I use to best get the honky tonk piano sound? And yes, I'm writing this part for a piano.
Why must we have a dozen of these threads a day? The scale you use a very small part of your sound, and each of them has the potential to sound like a thousand different styles of music.
Play it like you think honky tonk should sound, or however you want it to sound. Don't be so constrained by theory.
E Phrygian, obviously.
I'm sorry, I've caused unnecessary confusion. I forgot the </sarcasm> at the end of my other post. Oops!I dont know really, Mabey not Phrygian, but it could work, as stated the scales play a small role in how the music sounds, but as far as what your asking for mabey major, blues, major pent, minor pent.
Meh, I was just looking for a starting point.
