I don't know why you guys call them "church modes.".....they're just modes.

Locrian is a mode. It is not used because it has no perfect fifth interval in its scale. B-F is a tritone. It sounds death metal.

I sort of explained the whole "church mode" name thing above. It was in a past issue of Guitar World. Relates to the modes being only the white keys on a church organ/piano.
