Modes of major scale pt2

Modes of the major scale Pt2.

In the first video I showed you all the modes from one scale (C major), where all the modes shared the same notes, each one starting from a different note. Here I’ll do something different: all my modes will start from the same note (C). Of course all these modes will belong to different major keys. This allows me to understand the structure of the modes, comparing them in a key (C) where it easier to calculate intervals. This is called the ‘parallel approach’.

C Ionian

C D E F G A B

C Dorian

C D Eb F G A Bb

C Phrygian

C Db Eb F G Ab Bb

C Lydian

C D E F# G A B

C Mixolydian

C D E F G A Bb

C Aeolian

C D Eb F G Ab Bb

C Locrian

C Db Eb F Gb Ab Bb

And, as usual, this is the nice printable PDF for you to hang on the wall: Modes of The Major scale: parallel approach
