This is covered in the theory sticky.
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.

What are the Diatonic chords of say a D Locrian mode?


the same as Eb Major except Eb is now the 2nd chord in the series not the 1st.

Ddim - Eb - Fm - Gm - Ab - Bb - Cm - (Ddim)

personally I would recommend working with ANY mode other than locrian. Assuming your ready for modes in the 1st place, I would try looking at dorian, phrygian, lydian or mixolydian.

find some songs that actually have modal progressions/vamps, and get some ideas that way.
shred is gaudy music
