How to create the Phrygian mode and harmonize it with the correct chords in Ableton Live

How to quickly create chords from any scale or mode. In this example I’ve entered the notes of the phrygiam mode and then very quickly extracted all the harmonic chords using Ableton’s folding technique. I could have used any scale or mode and generated the harmonic chords. Usuage: Lets say you have a melody in a particular key/scale/mode and you want to harmonize it with the correct chords…well once you understand the basic technique presented here it can be applied to all known scales and modes with very little music theory knowledge. My website www.chordengine.com has a full written tutorial as well as links for free useful utilties for improving your songwriting skills including the FREE nutchords utility which I’ve used in this tutorial for generating the Phrygian mode itself.

    What Do Want To Learn Most About Songwriting?

  • Songwriter Tip:

    Avoid the ‘Big Lie.’ The big lie is one that we all tell ourselves at one time or another, and that is ‘It doesn’t matter if they never heard of me, the song is good enough to stand on it’s own merits. Besides my friends /mother /father/ grandparents /wife/etc. all love it.’ Nonsense. Music industry people are deluged with tapes and have no time to imagine how your song may have sounded if it had been produced properly. If you truly believe that what you have done is the best that you are capable of doing, then commit the resources and do it right. Otherwise, save your time and money for another go at a later date.
