Check out the “Let it Snow” Xmas 2020 Group youtube project!”
This is a well put together explaination of what is going on in a hit pop song. Maybe someone else will find interesting here too. Its talk of things musically that I probably will never use..or even remember, or need playing fiddle...but Im glad i came across it and now have a peek behind the curtain on how its done and why it works..so thank you..

Modal Keys can have an emotional impact on how a tune sounds
- that's why I love them.
Check out 12:49 - starts talking about the "Energy in these high note key changes".
Now I'm interested in reading, "Harmonic Experience", by W.A. Matthieu!
Just proves when we start playing around with switching between types of Keys - amazing things can happen.
Dramatic "Modulation" (key change) can convey powerful emotions!
...helping me to better identify what I enjoy in music!
Written simply - a good starting reference for experimenting.

GregW posted this video in my "Modal Scale Keys" thread - I'm also posting it here because starting at 17:00 the explanation of Modulation (key changes), and how the Beatles used it, is PROFOUND!
Felt the need to transplant your Adam Neely video here (from Modal Keys)!
I have seen this!
It's GREAT for showing how chords can be used to modulate in a tune.
Going it over again reinforces for me how important modulation is!
Was thinking about when I mentioned the Freemount Bypass video in F/Fm was only one note up from thesession.org transcription of E/Em.
Read about how "Modulating up a step (either a half step or whole step) is by far the most recognizable form of modulation because it rarely uses a pivot chord, but instead abruptly jumps from the old key to the new key." (musicnotes.com I previously linked)
...tangled chords? 🤔
