I made a backing track of the chords you tab and
tried baking some scales over them.

the key of D as the parent scale.
I rip A mixolian, B aerolian or G lydian over them.
It didn't hurt my ears too bad.lol

i don't think that's a Dmin7 you tab. it looks like a Dmaj7 to me
that why i did it in D . You also ommited the 3rd from the other chords
so there's more options. I decided to let the 9th ring or played the open A
of the G chord..that's why the A mixolian worked.

Wanna know something cool? You played D Major the whole way through. In fact, you didn't even TOUCH A Mixolydian, B Aeolian, OR G Lydian.

Bigz6006: Your little progression there is actually Dmaj7, B7sus2, Gsus2. In other words, D major works perfectly. Have fun.

Oh, and learn your theory.

nah...I quit doing that stuff a long ago. It's good thing i did.lmao
On a good day i get mild dyslexia.
It's not so bad with music becuase you can play the scale backwards
or they become passing notes.lol

check it out ...i baked those mixolydian backwards.

Oh, and can you also use any kind of scale over it depending on what you want?
#11
If it's in a major key, use any major scale depending on the feel. Same deal for minor.
#12
yeah...now you're getting into axis pitch.

Becuase the way you wrote the chords by ommiting the (3rd or b3r)
So the 3rd is or door is left open for you to use different scales.

look for scales with the common notes as the chords.
example...by adding the 9th. look for scales with a natral 2.


I didn't spend that much time on it...but if it was a song i was writing.
I would spend more time getting familar with the arppegios of the chords.
And what common notes those three chords have.

I might write a riff using one of the arppegios as a pedal or hook sort of speak
and maybe use the appegios of the chords to slide or lead into when
there's a chord change.

All I did on this was use the root of the chord to guide me. i kind
of hit those roots on purpose so you can hear it.
I slided the G note to the A note and over the Gadd 9..so U can hear it.
Then i just played A mixolian over it accending..
Then I played D ionian decending.
Then B min penta (aerlian).

On the last scale..I held the G and simply played G lydian decending
and slide into the D


You know how some people say...they get bore with the aerlian.
When i doupt...go with aerlian

I'm not even going to waste my time correcting all this...

Everything you need to know I have already said in my last couple posts. I suggest ignoring what Ordinary has said.

He's obviously a decent guitarist judging of that lead part he came up with, Im not a lead guitarist, but I DO wanna work on some soloing. So Imma try out some things he suggested.

Which is fine, but his theory is suffering and I'd hate to have someone else jump on that same boat with him.

Just to clarify though, bigz6006, Ordinary's first line in his above post is incorrect. That idea has NOTHING to do with pitch axis theory.

Also, he speaks as though he is changing modes over every chord. He is not. Make sure you remember this.

No...no. You don't know what modes are, and you need to stop talking. You've been corrected on this countless times, and you need to shut up and read.
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.

I have no room in my sig, so someone else, one of the MT regulars, has to sig this.

Perhaps it should simply go in the rules thread.

Uhh... But thanks everyone else for the help!
