DORIAN MODE: The #6 Minor Scale

GuitarBlog: DORIAN MODE: The #6 Minor Scale...

The Dorian mode (and all the other modes) can be viewed in two ways. They can be seen in relationship to the major scale that they come from. Or, they can be looked at in a parallel manner to the scale of the same tonic and same tonality. 

Once a musician understands both of these perspectives, they can apply their mode in the way that they would prefer. 

In this lesson, I'm going to break down these two ideas theoretically. I will clarify the concept of the #6. Plus, I'll demonstrate a Dorian mode single-string melody, and I'll also play through a set of rock chord changes that promotes and supports the, "Dorian Mode," sound. Enjoy!
