It's an interesting scale. You could use it for some creepy sounding stuff if you do it right. I'm still trying to figure stuff out. You know quite a bit about music, that's impressive. If you keep at it you're gonna know more than even some of the best guitarists out there

Ah yeah, I've heard that scale somewhere, I think it was in metalcore or something like that.

It's the harmonic minor. I made some research and there is more than one major scale. I just realized that pretty much anything with a major 3rd is a major scale. The harmonic is minor and the double harmonic is major. It's 1, m2, M3, 4, 5, m6, 7. And yeah I've been wanting to get into other music as well. I mean one of my favorite bands, Breaking Benjamin has a lot of songs in drop A#. I'll check bring me to the horizon out. I've been wanting to for a while now.

I don't know if that's actually called the harmonic major scale, but basically it's the major with a diminished 6th. And wow, you're really starting to get into the lower tunings. Bring Me the Horizon have some great songs in drop A#.

Anytime man, it's free too so that's even better. This guy has a crazy amount of knowledge on music theory so hey that's probably the best place to look at. It's helped me quite a bit too. Yes, my favorite scale (I don't think it's on the site I've been doing my own research) is the double harmonic scale. I use the harmonic minor scale a lot too, it's not too different from the natural minor. Only one note away. But hmm I thought there was only one major scale. Unless you're talking about the modes. Or altered versions. But oh there you go. I'm using D'Addario Drop C tuning 12-52 I think or something like that. I have my Schecter still in Drop D though and I changed my Jackson to Drop A#.

Oh, thanks for letting me know! I've been trying Synyster's site for the last few days and it's helping me A LOT. I really like the harmonic scales, both major and minor. And by the way, I'm tuned to drop C and I use Ernie Ball's Not Even Slinky pack.

That's okay. None of us here are professional mixers or anything so with a little tweaking and trial and error we'll get it. Oh by the way, Positive Grid is offering their Compressor plugins free (coincidence) which I think is really good and you should get it. Especially you Charles since you play guitar. Oh by the way I remember you telling me about trying to learn to do sweep picking and everything. Check out syngates.com he has a tab you can follow along with different arpeggio shapes and you can change the tempo and everything. It's awesome I've really improved since I've been practicing it. I can get the first three sections at 70% speed. Definitely check it out man. I love stuff like that so if you ever find a good site or anything let me know. I've been recently learning how to use different scales. I use scale-chords.com to find them. It's a little more advanced but it works. I think my all time favorite scale is the double harmonic. I'm in love with that scale. It's pretty much all half steps and you could really use it to make very melodic sounding solos. Maybe I'll demo it one of these days. I've been working a little bit on Severed Lies. My Les Paul for some reason doesn't sound very well on Drop C though. Hmm I think I might just need to change the strings so there's more tension because it sounds kind of like it's going out of tune. Mostly on the lower frets though on the B or G strings which is kinda odd. But oh well I'll see what I can do. What have you guys been working on?

It actually used to be way worse. I'm not very experienced with limiters. Maybe that, and some more subtle effects, will make the vocals pop out a bit more.
12/30/2017 7:44:26 PM
during the verses, I mean.
12/30/2017 7:44:16 PM
Um.. why are the vox always "stuffed beneath"?
12/30/2017 9:39:25 AM
Not bad at all. I think we're pretty much done with it. What else do you think it's missing? The only thing is that it's a tiny bit quite. Nothing a limiter couldn't fix though so that's not bad. Or even a compressor here and there.
12/30/2017 6:15:25 AM
Alright guys, I finally got to work. Tell me what you think of this!
12/2/2017 11:39:46 PM

Alright, I'm finally free to record the whole album! Which songs need work? I think I'm gonna start with Shatter Here.
6/21/2017 6:11:52 AM
Ah yeah xD
I've been composing quite a lot of stuff for other bands recently.
I have an exam in 2 weeks, then enjoying 2 months of holidays :D
6/21/2017 5:09:14 AM
Okay, so hello everyone. I was on vacations in Kashmir.
Bet you've heard the song by Led Zeppelin :)
I'm refreshed and looking to get some stuff done with the music ^^
6/13/2017 1:37:51 PM
Yes, Yes they are. But yeah I saw that. I used it for Shatter Me I think. And it's an Epiphone. It's pretty cheap, I only bought it because i needed something in a different tuning because Floyd Rose sucks. I mean it's cool and all but it's easier to get a fixed bridge.
6/12/2017 11:04:45 PM
I also tried your overdrive btw. Oh, and that's awesome! Gibson or Epiphone? Now I guess you can see that Floyd Roses are the plague when it comes to drop-tuning.
6/12/2017 4:06:23 PM
Yeah it's pretty cool. I've used it when I'm messing around on my guitar or testing other stuff. By the way I got a cheap SG now and it's tuned to Drop C.
6/8/2017 8:12:12 AM
Alright Manny, I've just logged back into Bias Pedal, I saw you tried my overdrive, thanks for that!
