Super turd, did you realize that there are actually TWO major scales that fit your chord progression (E, F#m7, A, E). Since you did not add 7ths to the chords E or A, you can use both the E major scale and the A major scale. I don't get why people get pissed off at breaking down a diatonic progress...

'Non-classical musicians are an odd bunch being so wary and/or poor at learning theory. Can you imagine a poet, playwrite or journalist being unable to read and write, never mind not knowing the rules of grammar? Actually, strike 'journalist' off that list, they do manage without basic literacy skil...

This opens up so many doors. It allows you to read chord charts, it allows you to build your own chords, it allows...
