And then if we take the fifth mode,
we can start on E.
I'm running up and
down that in a pattern.
And you can start playing
other Eastern European,
Middle Eastern songs,
like for example Hava Nagila.
The melody fits right in.
I just wanted to run through it slowly for
you so you can get a feel for
what it's like to play.
In the modes of the harmonic minor,
you can think of it as being
related to fourth position.
Or as being related to fifth position,
when you started on the fifth mode.
Because it's E,
it's the E fridgian with the major third.
