Blues tends to use Mixolydian quite a lot, too.

Mostly Jazz because of the dominant 7th

But nu metal does have its moments like Slipknot Mushroomhead and Korn.

The Mixolydian mode is very similar to the Ionian (major), its just got a minor/flattened 7th. Therefore it will sound very similar and convey basically the same sort of happy feeling, but with an edge.

So if you think about it, and how widely the Ionian is used, the Mixolydian could just as well be used in a lot of music styles. If you were going to incorperate it into your own music I would advise you not to worry about using it in any style of music that fits the major scale.

^ *technicality* it has a minor seventh, not a diminished seventh.

I'm pretty sure you could use mixolydian in any style of music if you wanted too.

Ahh, true, but it is a 7th that has been dimished

its also used quite a lot in country and country rock. lynyrd skynyrd, for example, used it all the time. the solo in sweet home alabama is a textbook example.

No. It's a natural 7 that's been flattened. Therefore, it's a minor 7, aka b7.

I agree with you on this one. A minor 7th is one flat. A diminished 7th is two flats.

Im really dragging this out, the definition of diminished is lowered by a semi-tone, as this seventh has been flattened it is therefore diminished.

You know, Ill just edit my post to clear all this up.

^Well.. if you're going to be pedantic about it. The definition of diminished is reduction by a semitone of any perfect or minor interval.

b7 = minor seventh.. reduce that minor interval by a semi-tone (bb7) and you have a diminished 7th.

I remember in my jazz band last year we played a song called The Chicken, and i recorded a solo in mixolydian. It sounded perfect i guess that's why i used it, not to mention the song itself is in the same mixolydian scale haha

Ahh, is that the technical term for a bb7? Not just a musical "slang"?
