Lesson Info

Locrian

OK. Now we're going to look at the locker in mode. So this is the seventh note. Well, seventh node. So it's basically a major scale, but starting on the seventh note. So if we have a look at B Lochan or B CD efgab, this is a kind of a weird mode. You wouldn't really use it very often. Maybe in jazz, maybe in experimental music. If you want to have a crazy experimental section, you could swap to Lochan and then swap back, but I wouldn't necessarily use it very often in electronic music if you're making music for film or TV. And you want to have a crazy, like ridiculous section. Maybe you could use Lockrem, but it's not really gonna sound very nice or very pretty. It starts on the diminished chord, but it's good to know just in case you want something really crazy. So you can look at it as a minor with a flattened 2nd and 1/5 or you can just look at it as the major scale. But starting on the seventh note, let's have a look in Ableton Live and this is a B loch in, it's not the nicest soun...

ding scale in the world. But it's good to note in case you want something a bit weird. A bit crazy and a bit experimental. It feels like it needs to go back to the sea but it doesn't. So it really feels like it needs to reso resolve. But these are the modes. I thought I'd tell you about them. It's quite useful to know. So these are the ones in every single major scale has seven different modes. Two of them, we already know which is the major scale and the minor scale. But then we have the other five which are good to know. You can either work out the patterns for each one or just remember it's the major scale but starting on a different note.
