In this example we will use the extended four-string power chords to get a bigger sound.

The chord progression fits in the key of E minor, with notes just from the E natural minor scale.

In E minor, the note that gives the sound of the natural minor scale, is C, also called the b6 (flat sixth) of E. Since C5 is in the chord progression our ears will feel that we are in an E natural minor environment.

Therefore, if you were to play a melody or solo over this progression, picking notes from the E natural minor scale would sound good.
