Great Scale for Improvisation
October 02, 2018

Monday, October 2, 2018


This week's lesson is on a mode that you can use when improving or embellishing on a minor chord. It is called the Dorian Mode.

The Dorian Mode is worked out this way. Think of the parallel major scale, then flat the third and the seventh. So, for a D minor scale, you will be thinking of a D major scale. The D major scale is D E F# G A B C# D. So the D Dorian Mode will then be D E F(natural) G A B C D. I love the sound of this, especially the 6th degree which in this case is the B.
