    Fair enough. I'd love to know those other techniques then, beyond modal interchange. Pointers appreciated.
  2. Hi motherlode, thanks for the link. It covers...

    Hi motherlode, thanks for the link. It covers the parallel modes well. I think that parallel modes gives 7 out of the 12 Major keys for chord borrowing, so I'm curious how to borrow from the other...
  3. Modal interchange and borrowed chords+soloing

    Hi all,

    I've been looking at modal interchange for chord borrowing and soloing tips and had some questions:

    1. So, I can use the modal interchange idea to borrow chords from the 7 parallel...

    How to use different chord types?

    Hi all,

    I'm not quite sure how to ask this but here goes :)

    I'll find websites that show me how a chord type can be used before or instead of other target chords (e.g. for dom7-type chords:...

    Thanks everyone for so many good ideas (and apologies for the delayed response). I've never heard of The Advancing Guitarist, so I think I'll add it to my "must read" list. Also, I've never ran...

    Hi Malcolm,

    There's an A7-G-D for "Nothing's gonna change my world". I think you're probably right that Major Pentatonic would work there (haven't tried it just yet). The Gmin shows in the...

    Thanks, I've got the Beatles book out and will check what the other parts are doing. I've got a good idea how the song sounds around the Gm and am still stumped on my original questions. Thanks...
  9. Hi Malcolm, Thanks for the reply. To me, the...

    Hi Malcolm,

    Thanks for the reply. To me, the song is definitely based in one key with just one borrowed chord throughout, so I think I want to stay away from jazzy modal stuff (not that I'd know...
  10. Melodic Minor over this borrowed chord from The Beatles?

    Hello all,

    Today I was soloing over Across The Universe by The Beatles and hit a Gm chord that gave me trouble since I was expecting G Dorian to work well and it didn't (and I don't know why). ...

    So, I've run through the experiments I mentioned earlier and the m7 never really opens up - I think I'll take your advice to go with the flow on this one :). But first...

    Thanks for the reply JonR. I'm also thinking there's some melodic issue, since I can't see a harmonic problem with adding m7 to the V chord. I'm glad you mentioned using A Major Pentatonic over...

    Why doesn't a seventh note work here?

    Hi all,

    I was soloing over Little Wing by Jimi Hendrix and hit a 'bad' note which turned out to be the m7 of a Major chord. When I used M7 instead it sounded even worse. Can anyone help me...

    Yep, the Amaj, Ddim/F, and Emaj are the only standouts. And I've just noticed that I'm talking about all this in terms of F Major, F Major #5 rather than D Minor, D Harmonic Minor, etc. Just out of...

    Exactly. It's a little embarrassing, actually, but, meh.:rolleyes:

  16. How to understand my song's harmonic structure?

    Hi all,

    I've learned a lot as a musician trying to figure out a song I've written but I've hit a wall and really could use some expert advice :). Can y'all help?

    In my song, I'm not sure I...

    Hey Chim_Chim, thanks for catching my mistake. Guess I was in too much of a hurry to post before I left yesterday... Instead of saying "Ionian has 4,7 - Lydian has #4,7 - and Mixolydian has 4,b7 as...

    Thanks for the response Malcolm!


    This is cool. Do you have any chart like this for the modes of Harmonic and Melodic Minor?

    I'm largely relying on what I've read from web searches. If you...
  20. How to determine the characteristic notes of a mode?

    Is there a standard method one can use to determine the characteristic notes of a mode, even if the mode is not derived from a Major key? Currently, I want to know the characteristic notes of the...

    Thanks for the reply. Now that you mention it, I completely see how this is a mode of E Harmonic Minor (though I wouldn't have been able to name it). Just out of curiosity, did you recognize the...
