I have one example of a modal song made tonal. The melody by itself without any harmony sounds modal. And the first time I looked at the notes, I heard it differently. But then I heard it being...

If it means every chord is a different scale, I think you are talking about CST (Chord Scale Theory). So is modal music the same as CST?

Or are...

I just tried to show a fast ("cheating") way to read the clef.

^ That's not Dsus2, it's just A major. The C chord functions as the bVII of D major. It's a pretty common non-diatonic chord.

Yes, the song is in D major, even though the very beginning of the song...

The middle C on the alto clef is on the middle line. It's not that hard to read. Your C note is just "one step" lower than on the treble clef (and the sound is an octave lower). So you kind of just...

The notes in your riff are B, G, E, F#, C# and A. If we arrange the notes, we get B, C#, E, F#, G and A. That's the B minor scale without a D.
