Jalle, of course playing the other "tonal colors" like the 7th and 9th make sense in this calculation, but remember music is emotion, sharping or flatting say the 9th or 7th what ever can create an array of emotions, by subtle adjustments like creating tensions, resolve, or any number of sounds. There are many great musicians that look at improvition more in chromatic sense than modes.

Cool. I suppose I have to get over my thought that there are so many millions of ways to cause dissonance. I think that most of the time when I think a note is 'dissonant', it probably just doesn't fit into the mood of the song or whatnot. I think I get it now ;P
Thanks again,

Yes, I hope more light bulbs are going off in your head! Look at Eastern music, Oriental,... it's set up on a different tonal system than Euro/American music. There are many sub tones most Westerners do not use because of how the instruments are structured and intonated.

Thanks!
