Cool useful Modes:

These are some cool modes that you can use on the bass, or any
instrument for that matter. They are all different in their moods
so you can decide which you like or want to use.

FAIRLY IMPORTANT:

(if you don't know or care for notes skip this)


These modes are set in one key (note) but can easily
be change to any note or octive that you
want; the pattern is what matters, example:

Mixolydian in G: (I want Mixolydian in G#)———> Mixolydian in G#:

G A B C D E F G G# A# C C# D# F F# G#
(Bb)


And, also: No I didn't make these crazy names up.


Phrygian in E:

E F G A B C D E

—This is a harsh, exotic mode, used a lot in Spanish flaminco music.

Dorian in D:

D E F G A B C D

—This mode sounds more ancient and haunting (not in a scary way)
and is a mediterranean mode.

D|——0——2——3—————————————————————————————3——2——0———|

A|————————0——2——3—————————————————3——2——0—————————|
E|——1——3———————————————————————————————————3——1———|


Aeolian in A:

A B C D E F G A

—Sound minor and sad and old.
(might be a typical minor scale I'm not sure)

G|———————————————————————2————————————————————————|
D|——————————————2——3——5—————5——3——2———————————————|
A|—————2——3——5———————————————————————5——3——2——————|
E|——5—————————————————————————————————————————5———|


Locrian in B:

B C D E F G A B

—I cant't really describe this one, it's a little like
the lydian mode because it sounds a little bit confused.
Though it is similar to the Aeolian by pattern it does
not sound like the Aeolian.

A|——2——3——5—————————————————————————————5——3——2———|
E|————————————————————————————————————————————————|


Mixolydian in G:

— Happy sounding. I think this could just be another
name for a moveable major scale but I am not sure.

G|————————————————————————————————————————————————|
D|—————————————————2——4——5——4——2——————————————————|
A|————————2——3——5—————————————————5——3——2—————————|
E|——3——5———————————————————————————————————5——3———|

a different name for another moveable major scale.

D|————————2——3——5—————————————————5——3——2—————————|
A|——3——5———————————————————————————————————5——3———|

I hope this was useful. I highly encourage you to find more modes,
they really add a lot to your playing. I will probably be trying
to submit more tabs that have even better modes.
