Why when I play "Eb phrygrian, position I" scale it sounds bollocks/incorrect over the Eb chord?? I cant figure out this stuff at all lol. I wish to learn all the modes and be able to apply them but its alluding me

Do you know the theory behind the major scale yet?

Eb phrygian is Eb Fb Gb Ab Bb Cb Db
An Eb chord is Eb G Bb

The Gb in the scale clashes with the G in the chord
Eb phrygian would be better suited over an Ebm (Eb Gb Bb) chord

The basic reason: you're trying to play a minor scale over a major chord.

You obviously don't have too much of a background in theory, so scrap Phrygian and all other modes for now and learn the theory behind diatonic harmony first. Begin with studying the major scale.

Because phrygian is a VERY dark mode. Especially if your playing it over major chords, which sort of makes a phrygian dominant mode. It's normally played over minor chords.
