... can you recognize in this song? smile.gif Let's use our ears and figure out modal flavors! No cheating, ok? biggrin.gif



The one who guesses, continues the challenge by posting another tune in a mode of his choice and so on!

Let's go!

It's a minor mode.. the guitar lick after the first verse reveals a major 6th, making it dorian. Right?

One would be tempted to guess lydian, but I'd say ionian on this one. Not that I quite understand this piece though.

We have a winner! I have a question though, Is picking up your guitar and playing the mode you think you hear considered cheating?

The 'Joe' is all Mixo.
(There's a couple of minor 3rd screams in there though and he sort of squeezes em up so 1/2 b m3s).

The Vai generally sounds like Mixo but I swear I hear a natural 7th in there sometimes when he goes to the V chord.
But anyway, the dominant sound is certainly 'dominant' on that track.

Here's mine. Just the main melody.
Not a full scale in the traditional western definition but guitarists will be familiar with it (that's a hint) and the guitarist and violinist do bend/slide almost to a major 3 at one point in the melody where the rest of it is minor 3rds (that's another hint).
What makes this relatively simple scale sound so cool/weird in this context is the backing - both the chords as well as the time signature.

Melody (scale) starts at 1:04 ...



The melody ends at 1:27 and all bets are off at that point (though he does get back into it again and constantly revisits the original scale/mode ... in very obvious way once you know it).
Extra credit for chords and time sig (multiple answers for the time sig)
