This is more like flamenco banjo. Still sounds great though.

G Dorian Mode Groove Improvisation Gary O'slide - Mariachi banjo 2 days ago   13:40

A short improvisation over a G DORIAN VAMP, after you can practice over the backing track.

It's a widely used mode in modern music (jazz, funk etc ...)
It's a minor mode whose main feature is the major sixth.

- Root
- second
- minor third
- fourth
- fifth
- major sixt
- seventh ( in france we say "the minor seventh" )

You can use this mode over a Gm7,Gm6,Gm9 chords,
a G DORIAN vamp....

In my improvisation i try to play in a " modal approach ".
I use chromatisms and embroidery etc...

It is interesting to know that DORIAN is a dialect of ancient Greek.

I hope you'll enjoy this video and you'll have fun practicing with. :-)

I think it is very difficult to describe a color with words:
For example, try to describe the color red with words ...
very difficult ... it's better to show ...

It is the same thing with the musical modes

- fender telecaster
- fender deluxe reverb amp modified
- electro harmonix holy grail nano
- benrod creamcan pedal
