Jazz Basics, Modes Overview.
People [NOISE] people sometimes say,
why it's why do you have to
learn all these different modes?
All the why don't you just play a C major
scale over all these chords and modes?
And well [NOISE] the the actual
notes are the same but
it's the order and the intervals and
the different feel of each, each mode.
As you can hear, C major.
Sounds very different from.
It's a whole different feel to it.
And the intervals are different, and.
But it's very good to
know that it all comes,
that notes comes from
the same original scale.
'Cause that way, when you see many
different chords, you can feel and
you can notice that they belong
to the same family of chords.
Like, if you have a D minor
7 going to a G7, going to C.
Then you will know that these are three
different chords with three different
feels, but
the basic notes are actually the same.
So you're in the same,
in the same chord scale, in a way, but
you have to learn how to outline each
chord to make it sound like a D minor.
Going to C7 G7, going to a C major.
instead of just paying C
major over all the chords,
'cause then you won't be able
to outline the chords at all.
So that's a good thing to, to know.
But after a while you,
you won't be thinking of the actual modes,
you will just hear them and feel them,
so you don't have to think that much.
That's the, the goal with this education
that when you actually play a concert or
when you improvise,
you shouldn't be thinking about theory.
Theory is only good, it's a good tool of
getting to knowing what you're doing and
then after a while when you start hear,
to hear it you can just forget about
forget about it 'cause you know, you know
it somewhere and it feels natural just to
hear the chords and and
the notes that you will be playing.
So that's a good thing to think about.
