Here's 2 chord progressions you see a lot in the music of punk, alt. rock, & metal;

1) take a major bar chord (or power chord)and move it 3 frets up or down the neck (this is the distance of a minor 3rd).....ex. C Eb

2)play a major bar chord off the 6th str., move it to a major bar chord off the 5th str. 1 fret up.(or vice versa)
ex. G to Db (this is known as a tri-tone)

Rock On!!!

Mmmm . . . tri-tones.

That would mean you would have to be playing in locrian or lydian. Yummy . . .

Nothin like a good locrian medieval-metal ballad.

You guys bring up a good point, here's how I think of approaching a solo over a tri tone prog;
Think of the root chord and the tri-tone chord as being the same chord. For example, say where in C.

C (ceg) tri-tone F# (f#a#c#)

combine the two chords together and what do you have?
A C7b9#11 chord
Both locrian & lydian will work, but they both leave out the major 3rd, my scale of choice would be a dominant diminished scale; C Db Eb E F# G A A#(Bb) C. I think this scale captures the essence of the chord progression which sounds diminished in nature, not diatonic.

I see what you're saying.

. . . but do you think any punk players are going to have any idea what we're talking about?
