I'm looking for a scale that sounds 'sad'. Is it just a minor scale, or is it some kind of mode?
Much help appreciated, thanks

I think writing in the natural minor scale sounds sad...at times. I use natural Minor with the root note being A, and it sounds decently sad.

To examine the tone of the sphincter? What the hell is it, a tuning fork?
Pretty much any minor scale will sound sad.

Go through them all till you find one that works with what you're looking for.
Does being successful truly make you a sell out? Can't you do your own original music and be successful because of it?
No such thing, you need sad CONTEXT; some kind of chord progression that sounds sad, using a minor scale and only using diatonic chords from that scale doesn't always equal sad.

OR Just stick to D minor, people just weep when they hear it...
