    How many here use the Locrian mode in the majority of your playing?

    I've come up with some really creepy stuff with it!!!!!

    I like the Locrian mode, and use it occasionaly, but certainly not in the majority of what I write.

    the locrian, sharp 2 is more useful..
  5. Everytime time I try to write something in a Major, it ends up sliding over a semitone and becoming Locrian.

    Actually, I wouldn't say I use it a lot, but I voted "Yes" because I tend to emphasize the tritone in whatever key I'm writing in; that's just a sick interval.

    ...and what the heck is "<3" supposed to be?

    I haven't used it much.

    We touched on the C# Altered scale in theory. Ugh.

    I prefer Phrygian, but Locrian is really cool.

    in my band, no... mostly major and minor.

    but when i'm playing alone, i tend towards phrygian, locrian, whole-tone, whole-half diminished, major, and minor.
