Hello guys! In this topic the idea is that we say which is/are our favourite mode/s and if it's possible to post an example of its use... like this...

My favourite mode is the Lydian! The Lydian mode is like a Major (Ionian) Scale but with the 4th aumented (#).



Do you know the modes? What is your favourite one?

I must be boring, but I always gravitate towards the phrygian sound, even when I'm humming a lick to myself.

I haven't experimented with the modes enough to give a real answer, so I'll say Aoelian, but that vid is awesome, Gabriel!

You are not boring man! Every mode has its own feel and it's amazing to jam with all of them. The main purpose of this topic is to discuss about the modes and to inspire the guys that didn't try them.

I have enough on my plate to practice already :/

I'll probably have a go at Phrygian next, as would be the progression with metal.

Great! Maybe you could add just 10 minutes of experimentation to your routine. Every day you could take a different mode and just play positions, and try to feel the characteristic of its sound.

I really like the Locrian mode, and try to use it whenever I can. I use Ionian quite a bit as well, guess I just like that Ionian major scale sound!

I use Aeolian, Phrygian, and Dorian (for some Zakk Wyldish solos, so its more of a pentatonic tongue.gif)
I totally love Harmonic Minor and Phrygian Dominant sound. cool.gif

Honestly? I can't quite decide tongue.gif I mean, each mode has its subtleties and it can sound wonderful in the appropriate context so, I guess I'll say...I LIKE THE ALL biggrin.gif
