Hey guys. I was running some scales the other day, trying to improv a lead piece and the like and I was debating whether to use a major scale or a minor scale.
And then that bought me to this question:
Are any of the different modes (mixolydian, phrygian etc.) more suited to specific kinds of music? Do they represent specific emotions?
I like to play alot of metal so I naturally tend to favour music that sounds aggressive, so if I knew that a certain mode was suited for metal, i'd explore that a little more.
So uh, any help would be really appreciated guys, thanks!
