Hey guys! Been lurking for a bit.

I have been attempting to make a song. I am using the B natural minor chord progression. I have a few progressions down in this key.

For an intro I plan on making a riff/lick from the B natural minor scale, or possibly appregiating the verse chords

I think for the verses I will use this
Bm-A-G-F#

For the chorus I want to use distortion, so I was leaning towards 5th chords which would play well with my big muff. I made a little off shoot of the main progression for the chorus which is:
E-G-D-F#
with power chords it would be
E5-G5-D5-F#5
The power chords take away a lot of the character.

Would love some input about some more options. Let me know what ya think, what would you change and why?

Thanks all!

Down to taste my friend, and also YOUR opinion on the song is most important... mess around with it, see what you think and perhaps record an example and play it to us if you really want our opinions.
