    Noticable pinch harmonics that spice up the sound. The atmosphere seems to be based on a mix of blues and harmonic minor, maybe even phrygian. The playing is quite technical as I interpret it,...

    Yeah, it's not too important which words you use, is it? As long as you use the correct number for the pulse, and are conscious about which notes to possibly emphasize.

    It's not 6/8 if you have a beat 4 on which you rest, before you start over and do the same. That's just the last beat of 4/4 (but you don't 'use' it, as you stated youself). If it were 6/8, you would...

    The combination of...

    This corresponds better with my approach. That's how I have thought as I have worked with the 6/8 rhythm.

    I'll have a listen to your midi.

    I may check out the examples. I am able to create the rhythms I think, but particularly how you said 6/8 stressed the 'two' confused me a bit.

    I have checked out some of the modes of the melodic minor, as well as the melodic minor itself a few times, but never as thoroughly as planned (for quite some time).

    You might want to settle for a chord progression first, then combine it with a strong rhythm section. The more you define the background/atmosphere, the easier it will be to add a melody for it.

    Thanks to both of you. I'll have a look at the minuette, and maybe the bourre too. Glad to hear that sonatas and fugues weren't the most basic ones, haha.

    To me, the verse seems like it is based on D Mixolydian, and the chorus; a movement that lurks around E minor (Aeolian); still technically in the key of G major (like D Mixolydian).
