Help With Harmonic Minor Modes
 
Hello all. I've just spent the past two months taking a crash course in the major and harmonic minor modes after watching a few instructional Youtube videos, and I think that I've got the basics down.

I'm currently composing a groove metal piece in the key of G# Superlocrian bb7 that also modulates to the secondary dominant of D# Phrygian Dominant with some licks in D# Byzantine. Will I get a good sound by resolving from the Superlocrian bb7 to its relative major of A Ionian?

Yes.

You. Have. No. Idea. What. You. Are. Talking. About.

Dem names is leigt. So, sure. If you want to go to A, go ahead.

AeolianWolf 02-04-2013 06:49 PM

actually, yes, you'll get a good sound

but i'd very much like it if you'd post up a demo of the finished project to show the rest of MT that not only you know what you're talking about, but that modes are superior to all other forms of music

i look forward to (tearing apart) the finished result

They are. He used the lesser known names of some modes used in the music of Ravel, Debussy, and other Impressionist composers.... And metal.

The Byzantine scale was useful until the Ottoman scale came around and totally annihilated it.

MattyBoy 1337 02-04-2013 08:04 PM

That.

But, since you seem to understand what you mean, perhaps you should just try it. I mean, if it sounds good, it IS good.

I guess that you guys misunderstood me. I don't know why because my post was very succinct, but any anyway. This is an example of what I was talking about.



I'll post my own work when I get the time. I love the dissonance of the Superlocrian bb7, and I find G# Superlocrian bb7 to be the most dissonant key in all of music that I have had the time to experiment with. It's even more dissonant than Cb Hypolocrian and the key of Gb diminished in a joint modulation with a tertiary modulation to Bbb diminished.

Anyway. Any tips would be greatly appreciated.

Angusman60 02-05-2013 12:53 AM

Why would you use Hypolocrian?... We aren't singing Gregorian Chant anymore.

Okay, this is 100% a troll. It has to be.
