Most popular riff

Okay, so my talking is super awkward and I'm terrible in getting to the point, haha. So I just watched the lessons 101 and 102 yesterday, about the harmonic minor scale and the phrygian dominant scale (the 5th mode of harmonic minor), and I knew I wanted to make my contest entry about this! The phrygian dominant scale is just the normal phrygian scale BUT with a major 3rd!!! You can actually play it over major chords :o, and it will sound awesome even though it is a super dark and mystical and also somehow exotic sounding scale. No wonder it is used a ton in metal. So PG explains that it plays wonderfully over a chord change of two major chords just seperated a minor 2nd (aka half step) from each other, and thats what the backing track of this lesson provides. So I tried playing around a bit over that track, and while my improv does sound a lot like scale runs... hey I've only known this scale for a day, I'm sure there are a lot more interesting melodies hiding in there. ^^

  • I don't know how this status thing works, but... Gonna start learning Judas Priest - Living After Midnight today, and keep improving on parts of Breaking The Law (also Priest) that I haven't nailed yet.
