Thread Name: Modes vs Scales
Subject: RE: Modes vs Scales
This is quite an ambitious assertion, Tootler--"The underlying principles of the modal system are the same both for Art music up to the renaissance and folk music. In fact the application of modal rules to folk music is probably simpler as there is no issue of musica ficta."

What folk music are you talking about? And what do you mean by "art music"? Which "principles" are you talking about? Do you have any examples to prove your point?
