Topic: Help Confirm My Understanding of Mode
I am new to music and trying to make sure I understand the concept of how modes work in the greater scope of guitar. I am looking for someone to look at what I think I understand and confirm or correct it.
A greatly simplified song…
- [*]We start with determining the [B]Key[/b], which provides us with the [B]Scale[/b].
[*]Then we determine the type of tone we want [B](Mode)[/b] by choosing one of the degrees (I, ii, iii, IV, V, vi, vii) from our scale as our central tone/root chord. We play the root chord in a progression which provides the [B]Harmony[/b] and make sure the root is the dominant tone.
[*]Then we overlay the harmony, with the notes from the original scale which makes the [B]Melody[/b].
I am just looking for a high level confirmation that what I have defined above is correct.
