When you're producing for a while and you tend to write certain kinda lines, write certain rhythms, or move your bass this certain way etc. you are in essence learning theory, even if you don't consciously notice it. Really though, sweating over learning a shitload of theory to make dubstep is like trying to kill a mosquito with a rocket launcher. When you hear a clear melody line in the genre it's best kept simple. All you need is a handful of scales under your belt, if that. Examples:Joker -Digidesign. The bass just walks from G to B, and the entire song including the melody are just simple walks through B natural minorThe Widdler - Dopamine. The whole thing is C natural minor (ooh, there it is again! coincidence?). The chord progression is like I-V-IV (not exactly, if you know the song, the V is played down an octave first). The bass is the same as the chord progression.Rusko - Jahova. Again, the whole thing in natural minor, this time G. Melody just goes down the scale. Bass octaves on the root note (G)All simple shit in terms of theory.so yeah, if you were wondering, a secret weapon in theory is the natural minor. What base note you choose doesn't matter, saying one key is better than another is like saying green m&m's are the best. I use the scale 90% of the time and it's gucci bandana.Pro Tip: if you want your shit sounding like it came straight outta the arabian desert wielding a scimitar, use this scale (in half and whole steps) half, 3halfs, half, whole, half,3halfs, half. In C: C, Db, E, F, G, Ab, B, C
