The Modal Chords
Harmony is the context for melody. If there is only melody, then it is a beautiful early morning mist with a barely discernible mountain path. When there is harmony, the milieu is populated with houses, villages, forests, gardens and markets.
Some guitarists have preferences for different modes, and that is fine. The interesting and important thing to remember is that there are seven modal chords.
These modal chords retain their harmonic relationship with how a melody note choice sounds over them.
This is perhaps enough to write about this for now, to avoid confusion.
Writing modal chord progressions and then writing a melody does benefit from thinking about how each mode has a "tonic" chord, with a series of modal chords afterwards, that follow the same placement as where the other modes exist, or are found.
