well, modes are completely different than time signatures.
Modes are like the feeling or emotion in your music, or different positions of scales.

But your question, how would you play in 6/7 time.
Well, the top number is 6, which means 6 beats in a measure.
the bottom note means which note gets 1 beat. In this case, which i dont think anybody could use, would be a 7th note, but there isnt a 7th note..

so basically your post doesnt make sense

Normally you play relaxed, with an instrument. Often a guitar, holding a plectrum, or finger picking. For most people the left hand fingers the chords/notes.

That's pretty much how you play in any time signature.

For clarification for anyone who thought that 6/4 was 6 quarter beats in a bar, you are wrong. It is in fact 3 half beats in a bar, its in Compound Time.

Wouldn't three half notes be 3/2 time?

Or were you screwing around?

6/4 is definitely 6 quarter notes. You generally hear it, write it, and play it as two halves each in three.

Then surely 6/8 would be 6 eighth notes, its not, its 2 dotted quarter notes. Its because its in Compound Time, like I said.

^ By your original logic, 6/8 would be 3 quarter notes, not two dotted quarters... that is of course, since in 6/4 which is also compound, it's obviously not two dotted half notes, but instead three half notes?

6/8 is, indeed, actually 6 8th notes. Again, the metric division is by three, and you hear it as two halves of a measure -- hence why a dotted quarter note is so common as the total of three 8th notes.

Regardless of what the part's largest grouping is (quarter, dotted quarter, dotted half, whole, or whatever), it's the note value marked in the time signature that is the basic unit of measurement, not the duration of the pulse.
