hey, i know i've kinda asked this before but i cant find my thread anymore cos i went on quite a long holiday.. wld someone recap my memory pls? i know there aint no "right way" in music but this is kinda a basic question. let's say i wanna write a song in C. the notes i would usually use are C D E F G A B C but how do you know whether it should be a minor or dominant or smt? is it the modes? so its C Dm Em F? G? Am B C could someone clear this for me? my next question would be something similar but i have no idea where to start. what if i wanna write a song in Gm for example? what would be the "right" keys to use? i know a Gm scale consist of G A Bb C D Eb F G but again, how do you know whether the key you use would be a major or minor? i didnt really know how to convey my thoughts into words, haha. i hope you would be able to understand my question, thanks guys.
