Thread Name: Basic Music Theory Question
Subject: RE: Basic Music Theory Question
Wooooops, that darned "SUBMIT" key snuck up on me again.
Howie describes the various modes of music, by tuning a plucked dulcimer to each mode,(actually starts playing the scale on a different note) plays the scale in each mode, and then plays the same tune in each of these modes, with comments as to the sort of music that is usually played in this mode, or sounds well in this mode.
This gives the new person to transposition or harmony a really good idea of what is meant when someone mentions the Doric or other modes.
