Woops!! I should of posted this in Theory forum!! rolleyes.gif

Hi Everyone

I am attempting to learn a song by ear (for the first time ever!!!) to improve my theory which is pretty poor. But I am struggling to determine what scales etc are used.
I've figured out more than half of the notes/chords played but obviously its important to understand the theory behind the song.
Or does this just come with experience?

Could anyone give me some guidance or point me in the right direction if it has been covered elsewhere.

The main intro riff starts C,B. C,B,C,D#,C,B. So i guess the key is B and the tonic/root is B? How do I work out what scale is used?
***I've been searching google for hours, could the scale be C minor with major seventh?

I'm confused lol
Any help would be much appreciated.

The song is Mutiny by Parkway Drive wink.gif and its in drop B tuning.

Does anybody use music to relax and unwind after a hard days work (or play)?? If so what?? Post your vid below smile.gif

I do this all the time. It isnt always slow music either, it can be all sorts. It all depends on the mood im in!

This song relaxes me so much right now (the whole album too) and strike's a chord with me....especially from 3:09 onwards!

Each to their own i guess ;P
