F6 is a major chord, so you wouldn't play F Dorian because it's a minor mode.

EDIT: Unless you were notating Fm6 with that hyphen, in which case the answer is yes.

^Yeah, but F-6 is 1 b3 5 6

Depends on what's around the chords. If you've got like, an Fb Cb Dbm Ebdim progression(which I don't think would sound too great), you would be playing Fb major. Whatever notes you're playing will be in relation to the tonal center(in my example Fb).

But yeah, over JUST an Ebdim chord, Eb locrian, JUST an Fm6 chord, F dorian.

You can do it , if you don't lean on the b3 of the dorain.
mmm.. just becuase there's an ugly chick avaliable dosn't mean you have to
ask her out.
There's other notes you can ride on.
Since you brought in the 6th to color the F.
Ride the 6th note of the dorian.

Or do hammer and pull from D to F all day long while over the F6
Or try writing a riff or pharsing without the b3 of the dorian
Try starting off with the F neatural peantatonic, then add the 6th (d note)

The hyphen usually means minor in jazz.

is that a full diminished chord t/s? I wouldnt play locrian over a full diminished chord, I dont like the way the b7 clashes with the bb7. I'd play, what is it, superlocrian? Seventh mode of the harmonic minor scale.

yep


Locrian would be played over a half diminished chord (m7b5).
Someones knowledge of guitar companies spelling determines what amps you can own. Really smart people can own things like Framus because they sound like they might be spelled with a "y" but they aren't.
