Hello there,

I would like to attempt writing a ballad with a bit of sadness in it. Do you all have any suggestions for scales (for chords and lead play) that might be good to use? I have seen minor chords suggested for this type of song, but was wondering if any of you have any favorites.

Thanks for any input!

Greg :)
