Funny how you can study music theory/aural all your life, then stop for 3 years and lose it all again I'm sure 3 years ago I'd have been able to work it out... we did a lot of that kind of thing when I did A-Level music, but it's all got replaced with useless law in my brain now
F minor and its sounds like its mostly in dorian (c dorian that is)- Opens w/ an Fminor arpeggio- and the first bend is to an f as well (from 11th fret on high e). But I *** at this theory stuff, so---- Mike?

The main riff in Call to Arms centers around the F Phrygian mode. I use a combination of scales and modes on the solo. I use the F Phrygian mode, Dorian for the passing tones, Chromatics for the passing tones and in one section I use a Bb Harmonic Minor scale starting on the 5th note which is F. Hope this helps.
