Why not chromatics? Chromatic harmony was the "new thing" in the romantic era.

Ok and which mode would work best for improvising over this song?

The song starts at about 4:00


They'd all "work".

That's the beauty of the "mode".

Ok, I just asked because some are mostly used by one genre, like the lydian is mostly used for jazz.

Avoid modes for now. I didn't listen to the tune (no sound on my computer) but I would be willing to bet a substantial sum that it's either in major or minor.

NOTE: NOT IONIAN OR AEOLIAN.

Woah, there are some issues here. The relative modes are correct (since the correction), but if the track is in A major, then you play in A major. No modes. You can play notes outside of the A major scale, but they would be called accidentals. The use of modal terms are sometimes used to describe the use of accidentals, but it's not modal playing.

You can't just choose a mode and play it over a tonal piece of music. If it's A major, then it resolves to A and you use the A major scale.

Yes the beauty of the mode is that regardless of what we call it, it will always be the same notes over the same song and sound the same.

The other explanation is that you're not playing modes at all, just one scale, that always sounds the same.
And no, Guitar Hero will not help. Even on expert. Really.

Do you know whyyyy W.S Gilbert was frequently drunk on his transatlantic crossings? Because... he was quartered on the port side!

Now that I've got you, Let's revisit the birth of the Doyley Cott Opera company....

Now, here's a fellow attempting to ride a bicycle. But he's having some trouble, isn't he? And do you know why? Because he's a Scot!
