GUEST,john p folksongs in the lydian and phrygian mode (49) RE: folksongs in the lydian and phrygian mode 09 Feb 11


"I don't believe many gapped tunes are derived from heptatonic antecedents."

Thnks for that, on reflection I can see that a more natural process would be for gapped scales to be 'filled in' to become more strictly modal, rather than the other way about.
Whether the gap takes the major or minor interval may then depend on more local influences.

Perhaps it's not one or the other anyway.
