The Dorian Mode: Deep Dive

THE DORIAN MODE = also known as “Santana’s money shot”.
The Dorian Mode is an easily approachable and popular mode. I suggest starting with Dorian because it is quite easy to write cool chord progressions that resolve to the ii. Some notable tunes in Dorian are “So What” by Miles Davis, “Eleanor Rigby” by The Beatles, and “Scarborough Fair” by some medieval bard trying to entice a fair maiden out of her chastity belt.
