(Probably pathetic) theory question.

I suck at explaining.

You're on the right lines with the context theory. If you played an A minor over a C major chord, the effect would be C major. If you played C major over A minor chord the effect would be A minor.

When you play for example in C major over chord progressions, you kinda dip in and out of modes. If someone slaps down an a chord VI (a minor) in C, the effect created is that of the aeolian mode (minor) even though the 'shape' you are using is good old no-sharps-no-flats C major.

I think 'chord context' is about right.
