What scales or modes does boston use?? They sound upbeat and happy and make me feel good.
They use a lot of them. Which specific song do you want to talk about?
Sorry I didnt reply soon, like the part after the intro to foreplay, or the little licks in "rock and roll music"... i dont now much about theory besides modes and scales, so i cant realy describe how it sounds. Just think of tht opening lick after the keyboard intro of foreplay, then theres this lick and the final note of it kinda resolves all the others and makes it sound realy nice.
i'd say mostly minor pentatonic , maybe some natural minor notes. the bending and vibrato really make that intro great. they also do alot of harmonization , like the fills on "rock and roll band "
