Lick Up the Modes: Dorian - Discussion


Dorian is our second mode. If we were to stay in the key of C major we would have chosen to do D dorian, but I decided it would be more beneficial to use parallel modes. This means that we'll be using the same starting note while changing the rest of the notes to fit each mode. This helps to really see the differences between each mode.
