3. Scales and modes with tetrachords – The Phrygian minor tetrachord
Add to favorites Tetrachord principles as introduced in my lesson "Practicing the Major scale – tips and tetrachords"
A series of scale/mode exercises - continuing with the Phrygian minor tetrachord scale.
The Phrygian minor tetrachord is a four note scale that can be played with 4 different patterns/fingerings, you should practice them all.
Pattern formula is Half step, whole step, whole step.
A method/series to learn the modes and common scales by dividing an eight note scale into 2 four note scales (the brain has an easier time remembering 1234 1234 than 12345678)
You only need to learn 4 different tetrachords to be able to play all 7 modes :
Ionian Major, Dorian minor, Phrygian minor, Lydian, Mixolydian Major, Aolian minor, Locrian half diminished.
