  • Hi GMC!

    In this lesson we gonna learn the C Dorian scale (or mode) harmonized in 4ths.
    These shapes are in my opinion very useful tools to create some melodic movement
    in your comping, to improvive with chords or to enrich a melody... You also get some
    nice and modern sounding chords!

    To get these quartal voicings, we are simply stacking 4ths within C Dorian mode :
    > C - F - Bb - Eb
    > D - G - C - F
    etc...

    So there are 7 shapes on the middle 4 strings and 7shapes on the top 4 strings.

    Have fun!
