I just want to check, is this song, Magic Power by Triumph, an example of D Mixolydian (major, dropped 7th)?
http://chordify.net/chords/triumph-magic-power-dietsolution003 (For chord analysis, though its wrong on some things. Just check em. Pretty cool tool though.)
I ask because it seems to be in D major, because it revolves around D, starts and ends on D, yet it frequently uses C in both melody and chords.
It could possibly be G, because thats the only key signature I know that has D,C,G as a possible progression, but it also uses A major (I think), which G doesn't have. Also, the melody just feels best in D major.
So all signs point to D major as a base, but then there's that C major that throws it off.
So is this D Mixolydian, and if it's not, what is it?
I'm writing a song I just realized is similar to this, except for more modulations, like in the chorus it ends in a run from E major.
So I basically want to learn how Triumph's works to better understand mine too.
