3rds. . . hahaha try harmonizing in thirds, maintaining whatever type of 3rd the scale would naturally give you. . . rather it be minor or major. . .

exactly this. pretty much all bands harmonize in 3rds

Okay if you want to start harmonizing I'd recommend learning the modes. Because that will help you to gain the theory to pretty much harmonize everything.

But as you asked for bands... dude, go Cacophony. I can't believe that they haven't been mentioned already.

Modes have nothing to do with it.

TS - you need to start learning some theory, read the Crusade articles by Josh Urban in the columns section to get you started on the major scale.

actually the names of the modes has nothing to do with it, learning the Ionian scale, covering the whole fretboard in all keys is essential though, and modes is (imho) the best way to do it. There's two ways of harmonizing in thirds, either you first come up with a melody and then you try every note on the fretboard... oh that one fits. Next note in the melody, try every note on the fretboard... oh that one it is.

Or you know your modes and intervals and you just play the harmonizing in diatonic thirds almost automatically, because you know your theory.

You chose...

of course, you can harmonize in other scales than ionian and its modes but, it's the best way to start (imo). The step from aeolian (6th mode of the ionian scale) to harmonic minor (natural minor/aeolian mode with a raised 7th) is very small.

almost any power metal band you listen to will harmonize solos, especially dragonforce they harmonize ALOT

you can do it simply by playing a lead line then just replace every note with the note that is a 3rd or a 5th away from it in the scale
i.e. in A minor if you play A-C-B then you can harmize by playing C-E-D

There's no reason to bring modes into it though, they just confuse matters - we're just talking about the major scale here.

sure, it's just that to me, learning the modes has helped me learning the Ionianscale much better, and I'm almost able to harmonize any note on the fretboard diatonically pretty fast (if you name a key) I wouldn't have been able to do that without modes, so it was more like a suggestion to help the learning process but sure, you're right. Knowing the modes has nothing to do with harmonizing, it just helps you learn the ionian scale which has everything to do with harmonizing.


Boy, that was confusing..
