What are some relations of certain modes to certain moods and genres? I recall at least two threads that discussed sinister sounding chords and how to make a bass sound "evil", etc. but nothing else (I even did a search! Go me!). Make your suggestions, with examples please . I'll toss in my bit -- it seems anything minor with proper phrasing can sound very sad, and when played with a "droning" tone (eg, on a fretless or on upright -- especially played arco) can be very "evil" sounding, per se.
