I have a question regarding modes. I think this is one of the theory aspects I still can’t fully wrap my head around.
Elsewhere I learned that the Dorian mode, which starts on the second degree of the major scale, is when you play the notes of the previous key, i.e. so to play C dorian, you basically play the notes of Bb scale. E dorian, play the notes of D scale, etc. This is how I already think about Dorian.
Should I forget about this way and instead see Dorian in terms of b3 and b7 each time? Which way of thinking will be most efficient while improvising?
oh yes… seems complicated
hold on with Hayden)))
ear is quite helpful (modes, major, minor…)
by the way… you can try for fun to combine scales …
for example, for fun
harmonic minor scale (left hand) with major correspondance (right hand)… then begin scales not only off the root… the turn all this until this preparation works… as in pastry))) nb : don’t be afraid to fail a lot))
