3. Scales and modes with tetrachords – The Phrygian minor tetrachord

FavoriteLoadingAdd 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. Playlist with the 4 different Phrygian minor tetrachord fingerings and a simple impro piece using the for a Phrygian minor tetrachord: Go to previous lesson on minor tetrachords HERE
