The Dorian mode aka ‘Jazz Minor’ is built on the second degree or mode of the Major (Ionian) scale. On the piano, it is a strictly diatonic scale that corresponds to the white keys of the piano from “D” to “D”, or any transposition of its interval pattern. Again, the Dorian mode only has one note difference when compared to the Dominant (Mixolydian) scales, arpeggios and chords you mastered in JGS-02. Nice! Remember that musicianship and practical application is up to you. Get out there and play with fellow jazz guitarist!
