Jazz Basics,
Phrygian Mode.
The third step of the C Major
scale is called a Phrygian mode.
E Phrygian.
And it's a C Major scale that
starts from E and goes up to E.
So the notes are E.
[SOUND] F.
[SOUND] G.
[SOUND] A, B, C, D.
[MUSIC]
So the Dorian
scale was like a minor scale
with a natural 6.
This is a minor scale with a flat 9.
[MUSIC].
And a flat 6 as in the aeolian
mode to the pure minor scale.
[MUSIC].
So try to find the scale
all over the neck.
[MUSIC]
And
try, just as I tried in the previous
modes, all these intervals.
You can try thirds.
You can try fourths.
You can try fifths.
You can try sixths and sevenths.
And it's al,l within the same scale.
It derives from C major,
but it starts on E.
On E minor, and also you can try
the chromatics and try to find the triads.
And you can also try to play
the full minor major 7,
or minor 7, or arpeggios.
So in, in C mi C major,
you just have C major,
D minor, C major 7th, D minor 7,
E minor 7, F major 7, fourth step,
G7, the fifth step, A minor 7.
Sixth step and B minor 7 flat 5.
B minor 7 flat 5, A minor 7, G7,
F major 7, E minor 7, D minor 7 and C.
And the chord we'll be improvising over
is E minor chord with a flat 9.
And this is the phygrian mode.
[MUSIC]
