A math guy looks at modes

I could also do this with letters, but it defeats the point.

I practice these for all the modes.

Whats the difference with the top and bottom ?
Major and Minor? Just different intervals slightly just because?

First one runs triads on the dom7 mixolydian mode, the second runs the major scale..
All you do is type the scale degrees or note names and it generates the 8 triad sequences.

Everyone does this for the major and relative minor. Ever do it for the lydian augmented?

Everyone does this?!

Running triads on major and natural minor and playing pentatonic minor in 5 are stuff of GC lore.

More than one value per cell in Excel makes my brain hurt.

I’d have done that in Python....

Think of each cell as a triad. 8 triads per sequence. 8 sequences - ascending and descending.

Im old skool. I dont even know what Python is.

Yes, check out the spectral distribution of gc wanking:
46% slapping
23% pentatonic
11% arrythmic bass lines
30% other

Python is an old school programming language. By comparison calling excel old school is like calling Lil Jon old school. If you were old school you would be doing this in Lotus.

Lotus Notes, or Lotus 123?
(I know you meant 123).

How many percent is that, total?

Python is as old as Excel (3 years younger - but Excel did not really get popular until Windows 95. Most math guys would use Matlab and most math guys today use Python because doing multi dimensional linear algebra (and other math problems) by hand would hurt. I think you want to re-title this as Excel Guy looks at Modes

Requisite smiley ->

Also my old friend learned python 3 years before he retired at age 63. He went ahead and wrote a program inspired by a Tolkien LOTR board game. He now has a github project at 73. He was mostly an engineering manager in his entire career and was jet tech when he was in the Air Force. An old dog can learn new tricks - he once said to me.

I remember Lotus and Lotus notes. And Fortran IV and Basic , Z80 and 6502.
Now, I am old and decrepit and use pencil and MS products.

Call Python and Lotus 1-2-3 old school?

Try VisiCalc. And FORTH.

Now that’s being Old School.
