Not really....but listening to him did make me realize that I have no clue about how to extract the sound out of modes. I then came up with a nice unconventional progression (unconventional meaning one I've not heard, not really "unconventional"). I had a go at this nice progression I came up with. D E | C D | E7 (sometimes E7#9) What I'm using: On the first bar ( D E) I'm using an E mixolydian. This is where I want you to tell me whether I've gotten even a bit of that sound. I kinda thought I did. On the second bar (C D) I'm using a D mixolydian sometimes and a B phrygian sometimes. More often than not, I was using this bar to resolve the tension I was creating in the first bar....putting the G note to good use here. The third bar (E7), I'm using B phrygian. I have no idea why. It just sounded right. More often than not it was just a pentatonic though. Code: http://www.geocities.com/robotpajamas/mixophrygian.mp3 Another place I was using a lick similar to the Mama I'm coming home intro but with a different feel to it. Its difficult to use bends and hammerons/pulloffs on the nylon string so the whole lead didnt come out great. I'm more interested in opinion whether I've been able to get that mixo sound happening. Opinions/discussions appreciated.
