Question. What scales would be good for Symphonic Metal? I'm writing a song for My Choir and I want the guitar part to have a Symphonic Feel.

Yea I was thinking Aeolian mode of Harmonic minor but I want to have more options.

There is no "Aeolian mode of Harmonic minor," though I assume you just mispoke.

However, Natural Minor and Harmonic Minor are going to be the best scales for what you're trying to do. Naturally, however, feel free to experiment.

would the melodic minor work here? if not then i agree with BGC, harmonic with some phyrgian.
