sappho invented the plectrum

you heard it here first folks guitar picks are lesbian culture

she's also said to have invented the mixolydian mode, but iirc "mixolydian" to the ancient greeks was very different than what we think of as mixolydian today


however, go ahead and use mixolydian for your gay songs anyways cuz mixolydian is awesome

UPDATE: im not an expert on ancient greek music theory but if im reading this right, her mixolydian mode was roughly similar to our locrian mode

which is EXCELLENT because locrian mode is very good and now its also confirmed to be gay
