Every MAjor is also a minor mode ?
HI Their IGTians
wanted to ask that is every major mode is also a minor mode ?
Emajor Scale have following notes :-
C#minor Scale has following notes:-
does that mean minor is also a major (of-a-kind) ?
u got the funda wrong...
that just means ...that the sixth mode of a major scale (the aeolian) is a minor scale of that note....
well...say u take that e major of urs and instead of startin and ending it with the e...you start and end it at c#...that is u pivot at the 6th note of the e major .i.e c#...then u get the c# minor scale..
this is what is called modal playin....and the new scale...which although has the same notes as the e maj...but due to its diff tonal centre (c# instead of the e) and diff interval structure between the 1st 2nd and so on notes.....is called the 6th mode of the e maj..the aeolian....
i am very confused about major can u plz send me ur phone number so that i clearify u can mail me on [SNIP] Plz i wanna clear my doubts.
YOu are in the wrong forum,....
Every major key has a realtive minor key
and every minor key has a realtive major key.
So what is the big deal?
Dude, the big deal is getting <i>the tonality</i> of a mode. That way, you can say all of music has just 12 notes. What's the big deal?

For example, harmonise the E scale by taking the 1,3,5,7 from the E scale. with each note as the root.
YOu will get
E: E,G#,B,D# = E maj 7 chord
F#: F#,A,C#,E = F#m7 chord
Ebm7b5 (also called Eb half-diminished)
For each chord, you can play a set of scales. For example For F#m7 you can play F#m pentatonic and so on.
Note: The only chords that appear only once in the harmonised diatonic scale (the do, re me or sa re ga scale, harmonised as above) are the dominant 7th (For E, it is B) and the m7b5 (For E it is Eb).
So, from a chord sequence, you can make out what scale by locating the dom 7. For example, you have Dm, G7 and C. So, the dom 7 is G, the fourth of which -- c-- is the key centre.
If you go deeper, you can see that ebm7b5 is B9 without the root note.
Moral of the story, dig deep and you shall discover new joys
So, C#m is just one of the many scales you can use over the E scale. But, again, the trick is the tonality. For example, play E to E through C scale. Instantly, you will get an Arabic kind of sound (especially if you hammer on the e-f and b-c) .
It is this theory -- that a particular sequence of notes evokes a particular emotion -- that all of Indian classical music is based on.
Western music has more rigid harmony rules -- as in what you play <i>over what chord</i> -- but Indian music has more rigid melody rules -- as in what note you play after which note.
Hope it helps.
thanx for all the replies
