So basicly thats WWhWWhW instead of WWhWWWh?
Thanks, I'll try that out.

Cool, I'll try and find you a scale either later tonight, or tomarrow night.

I'm curious what you'll come up with

i could post some riffs in guitar pro and post them here, so you have an idea.
i have one riff at post your own riffs, there is a viking riff there.

if ya need some more details, private mail me, or feel free to reply.

Cool, could you post some?
