Hey Muris. I was wondering if the augmented and harmonic minor scales were good for getting sort of a dark melodic sound (Need for band me and my friend want to start) and while on the subject if you can suggest any other scales to get this sound.
Thanks.

Hope Muris doesn't mind me saying this but diminshed scales and phrygian (dominant) modes are quite dark as well.

Oups,I missed it ,sorry sad.gif

Yeah,phrygian dominant is pretty common scale nowdays
and will give you kind a dark and melodic sound.
Same with phrygian mode as well. smile.gif

Try whole note scale also,and Lydian #4!
