Lydian but unfortunately there isn't much call for it in metal

Most of the time I end up playing in Aeolian or Phyrgian Dominant because of the nature of the music I play.
R.I.P. My Signature. Lost to us in the great Signature Massacre of 2014.

Ya, Phrygian Dominant is fun, special doing a fast hammer on-off from the 3 to the 4, so Spanish/Arabian sounding. I just love it. xD

Ok so I was right the first time. I got them confused. Phrygian has the b3.


Edit: I'll go edit my first post to kill the confusion. xD


Double Edit: For the people confused about the difference between a mode and a scale.

"A scale can be defined as a series of notes, arranged by order of pitch, between a root and the octave. Theoretically, any combination of notes between the root and octave could be considered a scale. On the more practical side, there are a finite number of note combinations that have gained acceptance in western music. Eastern music, on the other hand, tends to be more open-ended as far as the note combinations that are considered acceptable.

A mode can be thought of as a way of manipulating the notes of a scale in order to generate a greater variety of sounds."
