    Dorian is depressing? To me it projects more of a balanced-relatable, bluesy feel that is borderline sad (no wonder it's the Harmonic Center as Richard Merrick calls it, also it's the reflective axis...

    I agree that fret markers are really convenient. After all, the goal is to glide into notes but the notes themselves have to be in-tune. Maybe an experienced bassist with no fret markers on his bass...

    The bread and butter of jazz harmony is tritone substitution. The idea is that a 7 chord shares the same tritone as a 7 chord with its root a tritone away. Classical harmony would have you go G7 - C,...

    No, we agree on the angle. I didn't mean the V7, just the 7. Bluesmen liked the 7 and used it on the tonic, while before it was always in the V position.

    I also agree on the harmonic 7th view....

    Yes, it's peculiar the major scale didn't have the importance it's given to it today for 1000 years in medieval Europe. My view, though I can't prove it, is that it was an evolution. Especially when...

    Well formed generated collection

    Deep scale property
    Cardinality equals variety

    The G is a borrowed chord from the parallel E minor key according to classical theory. In modern theory it's specifically a borrowed chord from E Dorian. Through the circle of fifths a Major (Ionian)...

    Poem about the notes of the C scale

    Legend:
    *You - C
    *Power - 5th
    *Submission - 4th
    *Joy - 3rd

    You are balanced
    Your power sure is playful
    Your submission is airy
    Your power's power, wistful

    Glad I helped. You will know when you really know the modes when whilst listening to a song you go "oh, that's mixolydian". As for the modes of the other scales they are few and far between. The...

    D Locrian puts us in the scale of D Locrian. There is no use to think in terms of other modes. And I forgot to say you can't play Locrian over a minor chord, it has to be a diminished one of course....

    No, you chooce the tonal center. C is an example.



    Yes. Only major modes apply. Ionian, Lydian, Mixolydian.



    Yep. The key as you can see is comparing the modes in parallel. C Ionian, D...

    You can use the jazz approach to attach a mode to each chord not taking into account of the chord that's gone or the one coming. For example playing in D Dorian and when arriving at Dm playing D...

    In this context it's best to think in terms of key. So, in the progression Am, G, Dm and back the pull of that Am is so strong that the ear doesn't really hear "A aeolian, G mixolydian, D dorian". It...

    That's right, two scales of the same type a tritone away share the same tritone. The tendency of F-B is not just to resolve to E-C, but also F#-Bb.
