  • Statistics

  • The Dorian and Mixolydian mode are very similar. Only the 3rd will tell them appart as you can see in the following chart:



    Because they are so close, we will be able to use both of these modes in the same context in most cases. Blending these two scales will give the listener a sense of rhythm flow because of the chromatic notes found when mixing them together.

    In this lesson we'll use this principle on a G7 chord modulating on an A7 chord.

    Memorize the scales, work on every lick, then make up your own!

    Have fun!
