Thread: scales that work with hip hop?

  1. #1

    Default scales that work with hip hop?

    Someone on her told me the blues scale a minute ago & I finally figured out how to workk with it

    But I know this can't be the only hip hop/r&b scale... so does anyone know of different ones that work good too?

    Check out The Major Scales and The Minor Scales.
    There are no rules to which scale has to be used.

    and some dont have to even be conventional scales... for instance you can base it around a major scale but still use minor accidentals and even completely weird accidentals

    there is no formula for hip hop and rnb
    just let your ears show you the way

    Minor scales can go pretty hard if you use them right. Just experiment with them until you find something you like.
