Well, the most significant characteristic of the mode is the lowered seventh.
That makes this mode perfect when played over a dominant chord.
If we take a II-V-I chord progression for example the mode would be played over
the V degree very naturally.
An important tip: The seventh note of the mode is a lowered.
Since F is a very active note in C major scale attracting us toward
E we will solve our melodic phrase from F to E as we proceed in the chord progression to the tonic.
Notice that the fourth note in the mode could clash with the third
note of the dominant chord when it is played over the beat.
I recommend playing it only as a passing note (between the beats).
