Hi UG

If I was playing a song with a chord progression of Dm - C9 - G

Playing a lead guitar part over this progression, would it be right to use the Dorian mode of C Major? (Starting on D I think)

Would just like a little clarification on this. Thanks UG.

The progression has a b6, which would clash the dorian mode's natural 6.

Nitpicking: It's just "Dorian mode", not "Dorian mode of C major". D dorian is a D minor scale with a raised 6th (or a D major scale with a flat 3rd and 7th).

(Same as C Maj)


No it isn't. They're not even remotely similar.
Someones knowledge of guitar companies spelling determines what amps you can own. Really smart people can own things like Framus because they sound like they might be spelled with a "y" but they aren't.

My progression has a b6? Do you mean a Bb rather than a B, because a Dm - C9 - G progression has a B natural.

C9 has a Bb and no B. The progression seems to be chromatic, since Gmaj has a B.

When I say C9 I mean this:


e-x
B-3
G-0
D-2
A-3
E-x

Is this C9 or Cadd9, or is there a difference?

The notes I am playing in this chord are C E G D

Can you explain to me why there is a Bb in C9? Thanks

Cadd9: 1-3-5-9
C9: 1-3-5-b7-9

CEGD would be an add9 chord. When you see extensions like 9's tacked onto a chord without an "add" qualifier, the seventh is generally implied (and very often flatted unless explicitly notated as major)

Thanks a lot, I'm not really an expert on this stuff.

Click the "learn your theory" thing in my sig and get reading!


Thanks a lot

I'm doing this at college and am just starting grade 4 theory

They don't seem to want to teach us anything about modes until much later

Are you taking a theory class in college? Or just independent stupy whilst you're at college?

I'm going to say that your professor and textbook are much better sources that the UG (sorry guys).
