Which is relative to Major. But yes, I realize my error and they are different.

Not Ionian.

At all.


I'm thinking some pop-punk, perhaps "The Rock Show" by Blink 182. That also shows how you can use the relative minor in the chorus and bridge!

True. I remember reading somewhere that it was Ionian, but now that I look at it its more Mixolydian. Am I right?

It's all over the place. There's some Mixo, some Aeolian, some chromatic stuff...

Ramblin Man - Allman Brothers
Blue Sky - Allman Brothers
Knockin on Heaven's Door - Guns N Roses
China Grove - The Doobie Brothers
Take It Easy - The Eagles
Any Way You Want It - Journey
Sweet Home Alabama - Lynyrd skynyrd

You'll hear that major quality, which is kind of rare in rock, because everybody just uses relative pentatonic minor. :\

That's not completely true. Of course, plenty of hard rock is in a minor key and the bluesy stuff uses the parallel pentatonic minor (GASP!), but plenty of rock, especially the 50s and early 60s stuff, is pure major.

I know. I appreciate it. I kinda don't like it when everyone just takes pentatonic always...
