GMC Forum _ THEORY _ Minor Tonality

Posted by: onetabmat Jan 3 2019, 10:05 PM

hey Guys just wanted to post something that i've been working on.

basically If your in the key of G for example.

the three Minor Modes/tonalitys commonly used are Dorian,Phrygian and Aeolian

In this key it will Be :
A Dorian
B Phrygian
E Aeolian


Heres our basic A Minor pentatonic box were gonna use


A-C-D-E-G

So we can add A Dorian to this



Note: we have only added two new notes to minor pentatonic the B F# for this to have a Dorian tonality
starting from A B-C-D-E-F#-G

so lets add Phrygian to the shape now

its cool that the shape hasn't changed as all the notes were already there we just start it from a difference note

now start from B-C-E-F#-G-A

lets add our 3rd common minor mode.
lets have a look at the shape.



Cool we don't have to change anything all the notes are already there.

we just start from E-F#-G-A-B-C-D-

so lets have a quick recap

Dorian


Phrgian

Aeolian


Hope this helps Guys

Hi mate!

This is correct however I wouldn't call "Pentatonic Minor" to the first shape because you are adding notes from Dorian Mode and that makes the second shape (Dorian) very similar and it could confuse beginners. Don't you think so?

Also, how would you use this in real music? What about sharing short clips to let students hear this in context?

thanks for the spot on the first shape, i've amended it.

A Dorian

Use the B and F# over the Pentatonic box to give it the dorian tonaility starting from the Root note A

chords used are A minor 7 and A minor 6
