Thread Name: Modes vs Scales
Subject: RE: Modes vs Scales

Well originally in our Greco-Romanic cultural heritage influenced 'Western European' modern culture - the word 'Mode' had a very narrow particular specific meaning (as explained elsewhere) - but I suppose we do need SOME word to refer generically to all various 'specified notes sequences' in all cultures...
