Thread Name: folksongs in the lydian and phrygian mode
Subject: RE: folksongs in the lydian and phrygian mode
I have absolutely no idea what you are all discussing - or why?!

I learn everything by ear, all my songs and my (intermediate-level playing) fiddle tunes, and neither know nor care whether they are one or other of the above thingummyjigs.
If I like them I'll remember them,even years late; I know in my head where they go - - do I have any need to know what (mode?) they are in? Would it make a difference / improvement to me - or just totally confuse me!
