    Hi there guys.

    Can anyone recommend books and courses where I Can learn the modes, chords, and chord progressions used to create different moods?

    For example fantasy, adventure, heroic, epic, mystical, tension, mysterious, victory, sci-fi, dream etc..

    I remember I had a very nice chart in another computer that had all those different moods and the chords/modes examples of how to achieve them, unfortunately I lost it.

    Best regards

    Yep I got the videos from this guy at youtube, very nice. They are good, but too short, I wanted more examples. I am looking for more material, similar to this one.

    This is no longer valid, if I remember correctly, as tuning worked slightly differently in the 18th century.

    Nowadays, major scales sound highly similar to each other, except lower/higher in the registry of course. Same goes for minor scales, etc.

    There are articles out there that explain this better than I have, I urge you to research it as it’s an interesting topic.

    Listen carefully.
    Play one key.
    How does it feel ?

    Add a second and go through all intervals.
    Play only white keys.
    How do they feel ?

    That method also lets you explore the main scales, depending on which key you start:

    etc...

    Possible. It's also about tempo, arrangement, all sorts.
    A fallacy! If you know music you just write pieces that evoke that!
    I too have seen these charts and videos, and of course they all differ because it's subjective.
    Although some of them now have just copied each other.
    I doubt it is really. But again, this is subjective.
