Some music theory help
I’m soon to do a written music exam which includes a question on Irish traditional music. I keep coming across two terms that I’m afraid i don’t really understand, and googling is just confusing me more! Maybe someone here could help me with an explanation.
1. Flattened 7th - i keep seeing it as a characteristic of the music but how do i recognise it if listening to a tune??
2. Modal music - maybe exposing myself as hopelessly ignorant but please define!!
Thanks in advance…
