Well, Locrian tends to sound... um, ugly to me. YYZ is cool though. It's just harder to make it sound good. I like Dorian, it has that medieval sound to it. So, if you're asking me I'm leaning towards Dorian, but choose whatever you like. I'm intrigued by Lydian, too. Never wrote a modal composition myself up to now, but I'll certainly try.glennny wrote:Soft ball.
I love Lydian, which would be my first instinct. Mixolydian is all over the place too.
I've done a FAWM song in Phrygian ("Fireflies" Niveous wrote lyrics for that).
So the glaring absent modes are Locrian and Dorian.
What do you want to hear? I'm leaning towards Locrian, it's a bit weirder sounding to me, therefore fun.
EDIT: I guess YYZ is in Locrian, that song is 2nd nature to me. What do you think? Dorian? You name the mode, I'll do it.
EDIT: if you manage to do a cool song in Locrian though - kudos to you
