It's the other bloke writing now:
Well, I don't think it's bloody awful, but it's amateuristic - of course.
But we just have some fun playing the tunes of our favourite Rock group, not to make a living out of it. It's the first time ever we record something and of course it's everything but perfect. I know my guitar playing is not that good, but it's good enough to have some fun playing.
So, I'm playing a C Pentatonic all the way on Brown Sugar, the only scale I really know - is this scale completely inappropriate for the chord progression, or what?
It doesn't sound that wrong to me...
Anyway, if I have a certain chord progression, how can I find out what scale to use? I'm seriously asking you...
By the way, the band you mention in your other post is actually called "The Kings Of Leon" and yes, they are quite good. I bought their new album some time ago and there are some songs I absolutely don't like and some that really stand out. Same with Jet and The Libertines. And you can be absolutely sure that these guys know music theory, they would have not chance without that.
