Lesson Info

Ionian

OK. Ionian is quite literally just the major scale. It was called onion before it was called the major scale because these modes date from a really, really long way back and going back to our modes onion is just number one, which is also the major scale which I'm sure you already know. So in C major, it's just CD EFG ABC. I remember the pattern tone tone, semitone, tone, tone tone semi toone to work out the major scale. That's basically it. So yeah, it's commonly known as the major scale. So in C major, it's C ionian, but no one really says C ionian, you just say C major. And that's basically it, it's a really, really simple one. And next, we're going to look at the Dorian scale.
