Let's go back to Pierre's post #43 where he posted some mode patterns. Let's assume for a moment that we have everything figured out. We have rhythm and melody figured out. Let's also assume we've got the nuances of arps and style down. Let's just take a glimpse forward to the future if we may.
The mode forms are to be used inconjunction with improvising over chords; each mode fits some chords better than others. Modes are not for substituting as key signatures...key signature is a starting point and not a rigid set of notes for playing a song...we may begin and end in a certain key but we could and should not restrict ourselves to the key signature scale...we are encouraged to wander and be adventurous with other note patterns...
You are suggesting that modes are the accessories, the decorations or potential embellishments available for playing over the chords for improvisation. Nothing more. Yes/no?
EDIT: Henceforth, we should resist impulses to ask about modes? Osensei, I get the impression that you have been bitten. You really seem to have some real angst regarding this issue of guitar players and their interest in modes. What's the source of that angst, if I may ask? Are the guitarist's guilty of defiling the musical theory via blatant mis-use? Is it like guitarists are constantly using screwdrivers as levers when they really need to be using pry bars or using wrenchs as hammers? Is it something else?
