Post any chord progression. Any at all (provided it is not stupid shit like A-A#-B-C) and I will reply with the scales to use over them along with breakdown of why.

My guitar lessons are based around using scales with chords rather than chords with scales, which is something I never thought of before, but is fucking brilliant.

Also open for discussion on what scales to use over different chords and shit. And general chord theory.

Define "stupid shit"?

>Define "stupid shit"?

Dammit. Should have posted Rules -.-

1. All forms of chords are accepted. Challenge me.

2. Wacked-out chromaticism has no place here. No A-A#-B-C-C# or any other of the like. If you mst be Chromatic, displace them like an actual musician.

3. Typing Random shit is acceptable so long as you follow rule 2.

4. Get Jazzy with it.

>Em-G-D-A

Immediately I note that Em is being treated as a 1 chord. Since it is minor, it has a b3. D gives it a b7 which removes Jazz/Harm/Melodic (except descending) from the picture. Best bets are Dorian and Mixolydian, Natural minor, favoring the b7 and b3 and ignoring the b6.

G Major is G Major. Duh. But that's a lazy answer so we'll get fancy... g Major has a Maj7 Since we're in a minor key, however, we have a b6 which gives us use of the Harm. Major key (1 2 3-4 5-b6 7-1). Ta-da. Just use the b6 rather than a regular 6. Adds a bit of screech to make it bluesy.

D is major, but it is also the b7, which gives it a min7 rather than a maj7. So what has a b7 and a maj3? Mixolydian. Boom boom pow.

Finally, A, which is 4. Normally 4 is Maj7, but because of its placement, it is min7 instead, with b3, b7, and a P5. Again, Mixolydian and Dorian are your best bets, avoiding b3 in Mixolydian and taking it with Dorian.

All in all...

>Em-- Dorian/Mixolydian/Nat. Minor
>G-- G Major, Harm. Major
>D-- Mixolydian
>A-- Mixolydian/ Dorian

Took a long ass time. Now to get started on that beast >>52799832 posted

if you want, you can replace C with A for a modal kind of sound. Actually yeah, do that
>>
>>52799996
How did you learn theory/how can I do that? This thread is gonna be interesting.
>>
Don't know how long it'll take you to get around to it but
Fadd9 - C - G - Am
>>
>mfw i'm gonna steal your chord progressions if they sound good
>>
Does anyone know any good youtube video series to learn music theory?
>>
>>52800025

My mind is being fucking blown over here xD
>>
Gm7 - Esus4 - G - F#m

I've had that for a while and can't figure anything out that sounds good over it.
>>
I like progressions that have a descending chromatic line in the harmony. I heard it called a cliche line once because it's used so much in pop. Anyways here are a couple

ami - fmi - C - G - E7 - ami

c#mi - Caug - E/B - F#/A# - D/A - B - E - C#7 - f#mi/C# - D - E7 - f#mi - C#7

lay lady lay- A - c#mi/g# - G - bmi/f#

Another short one I really like is G - E - A -D add dominant 7ths to any of them
>>
>>52799996
Where did you learn this? Love it.
>>
Am-Bm-Am-Bm-E-F-E-F

Sounds like something early Pavement might use.
>>
>>52800344
a dorian for first four chords - a harmonic minor for last four?
>>
>>52800353
I suppose so.
>>
>>52799996

A less exciting answer would be to play in the key of A major. It would be a vi V IV I
Or i III VII IV in e minor with a borrowed major 4. Fuck I don't know. I need to work ony theory
