@tangmo - Your comments are very encouraging. I've read a bit about the modes, but I have never tried using them when creating a song. Plus, you are too humble - whatever your technique, there's great melodic elements in your music.

@sslechta - That's a great video. I've watched channel before, but I had not seen that one. Thanks much.

It's been great to see so many responses to this post. Seeing some of the music you're making and hearing from you is a great motivation smile
