Mixolydian Ear Training - Minor 7ths Phrase

Similar Lessons

The minor 7th likes to resolve up to the root. Once again you can prolong your phrase and move through the different chord tones before ending the phrase properly. 

Notice at this point a scale acts just like that. It's balanced perfectly. The farther out say 9th or 6th degree, the weaker the movement and most times feels the need to hit say the 3rd or 5th before resolving down or up to the root. Chors tones always resolve smoothly to the root. But notes that make a mode uniques are usually harder to tell if not mixed in or embelished with a chord tone, much like the 9th.
