Favourite Chord: maj9
Favourite Mode: Dorian
Favourite Scale: major??
Favourite Time Sig: 4/4
Favourite Interval: hmm.. very hard to say.. perfect 4th
Favourite Note Duration: 8th note triplets
Favourite Chord Progression: wellll... usually something involving IV I V. I like to hear a progression emphasizing the dominant chord. something I always loved, coming from Steve Earle or AC/DC probably

funny how my favourite chord and mode are of different tonalities.. I guess I like just a simple maj9 freetime vamp, and Dorian because of it's jazzy blues quality. interesting to see how those first three questions will differ so much in people since they're all related. my fav scale and chord share major tonality though

edit: ztwenny really said it there. its hard to pick favourites when you listen to a lot of different stuff. these are just things I like a lot that happened to pop into my head first.. kinda silly to say they're favourites actually

Whole-Tone Scales are yet to impress me

I've written entire instrumental sections using just the whole-tone scale. It has a very dreamlike quality, as does the first 5 notes of Lydian. And when combined with the diminished, it can give you a very heavy space-like quality.

A good example of the whole-tone is in Legen of Zelda. A lot of the more creepy music uses the whole-tone, with the bass moving some M3 in chromatics.
