Moods of the Modes

Modes!  The word might sound scary to some, and very un-fun and theoretical, but relax… in the usual Fiddle Jam Method way, I’ll attempt to make these very useful things, simple to understand.

Introducing the (Greek) names: Ionian, Dorian, Phrygian, Lydian, Mixolydian, Aeolian, Locrian…

What AAP members will get to learn:

  • relative modes explained visually on a piano
  • audio examples of each mode
  • comparing each relative mode to its parallel major scale to learn the formula for each mode/mood.
  • playing all the modes parallel-ly… this is where it starts to get interesting (and useful too).
  • famous uses for the modes
  • suggestions for what to do with modes (and when)
  • links to backing tracks and lessons using particular modes. Loop tracks are great for this!

These lessons are coming soon:

  • relative modes explained visually on a piano
  • comparing each relative mode to its parallel major scale to learn the formula for each mode/mood.
  • maybe a quiz to test yourself?
  • playing all the modes parallel-ly… this is where if starts to get interesting (and useful too).
  • famous uses for the modes
  • suggestions for what to do with them (and when)
  • links to backing tracks and lessons using particular modes. Loop tracks are great for this!
  • Should I offer a separate mini-course on this subject that goes into more detail?  Just like I take weeks of lessons to cover this with private students?
