Hello and welcome to Music.SE! Do you have a specific question about scales or intervals? As it is right now, this question is rather vague and open-ended. Feel free to improve your question via the edit button. Thanks! – American Luke Apr 19 '14 at 13:13

-at least* not at list-

Avicii uses normal chord patterns. If I'm not wrong he used Bm scale in a song.

The intervals are regular also but he uses nice effects which modern computers can produce so nothing special. you can search google for chords it is easier for you

yeah, but dont you notice its special his melodies are very special always happy.. as I try to make melodies as he does for increasing my knowledge and just cant.. like something missing .. I grew on middle eastern music so this kind of music is very unique for me just trying to figure how to start and what chords to use .. ? – jack Apr 19 '14 at 12:54
you should start playing classical music. it will lead you to play what you want. search for a tutor to start with. – Was.Francis Apr 19 '14 at 13:11
Classical music study might be good for the theory behind it, but really this is very typical western pop music, and MANY resources exist online for that. – NReilingh Apr 19 '14 at 18:49
