Thread Name: Modes for Mudcatters: A Synthesis Primer
Mary of Kentucky's eagle eye (from an e-mail):
there is a typo in roughly the 15th paragraph, where I say that "if you know some music theory, you will know that a key in Major mode that has two flats is B."

Should of course be Bb (Major). Thanks, Mary.

Glad this is seen as helpful. I would like to read even short primers on (1) playing the blues (pentatonics and all that); (2) on sounds and scales in non-Western folk music; (3) some more on learning to play different instruments; and a synthesis of some of the other really informative long threads here. I know there are books available on these, but I found the personal versions and tips of Mudcatters more helpful (and more fun). Thanks to Mary again for more song additions. Any others?

yours, Peter T.
