So today we’re going to be talking about modes again,
part II. This is because years ago when I was learning
the modes for myself I had to look at them in so many
different ways until I actually understood what they
were and how to use them. Now, that’s why I want to do
this video today and we’re going to be looking at them
from different perspectives.
Now the first mode we’re looking at today is G major
or G ionian and the numbers for it are arranged as such:
1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 1. Simple. The tones and semitones
are arranged like this: tone, semitone, tone, tone, tone,
semitone. So that’s the template for the order of tones
and semitones that we’re going to be using and changing
around for every other mode that we look at today.
