One of my fans asked me What is the most amount of different scales you have ever used in a song and how to layer different scale on top of each other.
This is a good question and feel it would be cool to share this here.
If minor is your base scale you can play many scales with another just the key you play the scale will be different and the timing of certain notes will need to not with specific notes in the minor scale. in easy terms......
Timing counts with scales like Phrygian dominant, Harmonic Minor - you can play a major scale on top of the minor but you have to play 3 semitones up from the Key you are in.
For example say your song is in Cminor to can play a counter melody in D# Major and it will work.
There is just the quick version with out me having to break down some crazy music theory so you can start applying now and now have your mind F%^ked
This piece of info is great because you can use this to give a happy melody change into sad or many other feelings or GREAT for giving different vibes for remixing.
Feel free to post your questions and thoughts below
Example We used:
Chromatic - Dubstep Drop
Minor - Guitar
Major - Chorus vocal
here is a clip of one of The Maniac Agenda track that demonstrates the use of multiple and layering scales - http://soundcloud.com/maniacagenda/a-beautiful-struggle-by-the
