You don't need scales to harmonise.

Technically no, but most people can understand the "slang" terminology of "scale" than putting it in a real music theory sense. What i mean by this, is that a scale is a certain progression of notes (generally 7) coined through variations and changes between the 12 pitches in western music. (Duh) But often times people (even myself) refer to scales when explaining just about anything to do with harmony because of the mass use of the word. But basically the correct word to describe the use of harmony would be the word KEY; although often times the word scale and KEY are used almost interchangably. (in most western civ cases)

So in reality the real answer in my opinion and probably most the knowledge of keys or scales is needed in harmonization.

I mean in a round about way i just said what alot of people said.

Diatonic is when the Harmony Line follows the Lead Line based on an interval and which Key its in, right?

Parrallel is when the Harmony Line takes an Interval and just keeps following the Lead Line with it.

I'm sure there are other types. What about when there are two independent melodies playing together, sorta like what Opeth does on alot of their songs? Is there a method to that other that just fooling around in the same key as the original riff? I think its called Counterpoint but I'm not sure at all.

i know in jazz they call it a fugue but im not sure if that term applies in a traditional sense. like if both guitars in a duo were to improv over the form it would be called a fugue, im pretty sure anyway

Harmonies

Thirds are the most common cause they sound wicked awesome...I have written stuff that has subtle harmonies that switch between 3rds, 4ths and 5ths...that sounds way cool and ominous cause it's unexpected.

Parallel harmony means that the interval between the notes of a melody and the harmonizing line doesn't change. Diatonic harmony is when this interval does not stay constant, i.e. when the harmonising line is shifted up a couple of modes.

Parallel harmony in 5ths:

Code:
|Gtr1 |---------------------------| |---------------------------| |---------------------------| |-------4-5-7-5-4-----------| |-3-5-6-----------6-5-3-1-0-| |---------------------------| | |Gtr2 |---------------------------| |---------------------------| |-------6-7-9-7-6-----------| |-5-7-8-----------8-7-5-3-2-| |---------------------------| |---------------------------|
