Playa allows you,
in most cases, to choose which mode is to be scale-locked to a particular
chord. Those chords with alternatives have the current mode shown
in red. Clicking it gives you a drop down with the alternative modes.
It is the notes of the chosen mode which will be scale-locked
to the white keys in the
melody section of your keyboard.
|Only the relevant modes are
available for each chord type as it makes no sense to play (for instance)
a Locrian mode over a dominant 7th chord.
A different mode played over the same chord can give a radically
to a piece.
Some types of chords (e.g. the augmented major 7th) have no choice
as there isn't a common alternative mode (to in this case the Lydian
Augmented). These chords have their modes shown in grey, and have
no associated drop-down list.
