AKS Modal Music - How to tell? (98* d) RE: Modal Music - How to tell? 08 Jul 04

I think an approach to understanding the basics of the (7) modes is to cover the black keys of a piano (or any other keyboard instrument)! If you can play a melody on white keys only, it is modal (well, lest it happens to be on some other exotic scale...); in principle, there are no flats nor sharps in (real) modes.

Transposing is another story then.
