    Last ear training “app” I used was a Jamey Aebersold CD, too many years ago.

    Re: Key of the song based on the melody

    As I said, semantics. Technically, the key doesn't change unless the key signature changes, although key centers might change many times. Your own example, Body and Soul, does actually change Keys....

    Re: Modes of the diatonic scale?

    Yes! And no.

    Lets stay on C. So playing the D Dorian scale is just playing the C scale, no sharps or flats, starting from D. But...D MAJOR has two sharps, F# and C#, which are the 3rd and 7th...

    Re: Modes of the diatonic scale?

    No. Almost. All except for the naming. The Mixolydian mode of G you would call D mixolydian. The Dorian mode of G would be called A Dorian.

    D Mixolydian is D E F# G A B C.

    A Dorian is A B C D...

    Re: Key of the song based on the melody

    Semantics. It changes key centers more than once, but never technically changes keys. It is from a Bb book, and why is that relevant?

    It's a very difficult harmony to analyze. It can be done, but...

    Re: Memorizing a song

    I memorize the melody first, then the harmonic structure. Learning the form is part of learning the melody. That's what works for me, but I surely wish i could memorize the harmony without the...
  7. Re: Looking for thoughts and opinions about a bowel back mandolin

    I've never owned a bowel back, but they must be very hard to keep clean.

    Apparently it will take something more direct to satisfy me.

    Re: Refretting a Gibson A

    Yes, and what do you think about putting the 80/40 on that 13" scale? I think that's what I want.

    Sorry for the derail.

    Re: Key of the song based on the melody

    There's more than one right answer. The first thing to learn, I think, is just the modes of the major scale. You can learn how they apply to different situations later, but a dorian scale will always...

    Some have noted that many fiddle tunes from the british isles are entirely modal, and were likely first played on simple flutes or pipes which are diatonic instruments. That music actually...

    Re: Learning mandolin and music theory?

    Another yay for mandolessons.com Great stuff!

    But I don't understand why musicians are so resistant to learning theory. Of course you can play without it, but it just seems natural to me to want...

    I haven't seen Don Julin's book, but I'm sure it's great.

    This one is too, if you can find a copy. https://www.amazon.com/Theory-Modern-Mandolin-Thomas-Ohmsen/dp/B0006ED1HY

    This is the documentary that Jaco deserves.

    Re: Kentucky KM900 strings

    Mine came with J74s. It's a bluegrass mandolin, built to sound like a gibson, why wouldn't it stand up to bluegrass strings?

    Re: Chord Questions

    Although those are the "named" inversions, any order other than 135 (7 9 11 13) is an inversion.

    Sometimes the fakebooks take whatever the melody note is, and apply that to naming the chord. Technically correct, but...

    I always had J74s or similar on mine. That's what it's built for.
