  Musical mode - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
However, the reciting tones of modes 3, 4, and 8 rose one step during the tenth and eleventh centuries with 3 and 8 moving from b to c' (half step) and that of 4 moving from g to a (whole step).
A mode is said to be minor if the 3rd scale degree is flattened; that is, if the third scale degree is one and a half steps above the 1st, instead of the two steps in a major mode.
Most of these chords and modes are commonly used in jazz; the min/maj chord, 7#11 and alt were in common use in the bebop era (indeed, the Lydian dominant scale and 7#11 chord practically defined the bebop sound), while Coltrane-era and later jazz made extensive use of susb9 chords.

Thus, in mediaeval and modern music, the Dorian mode is a diatonic scale or musical mode which corresponds to the white keys of the piano, from "D" to "D".
The Dorian mode is symmetric, meaning that the pattern of tones and semitones (T-s-T-T-T-s-T) is the same ascending or descending.
Confusingly, the Dorian mode is the same as the Greek Phrygian mode.

 Dorian mode - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The Dorian mode is named after the Dorian Greeks.
Applied to a whole octave, the Dorian mode was built upon two Dorian tetrachords separated by a whole tone.
The Dorian mode is equivalent to the natural minor scale (or the Aeolian mode) but with the sixth degree raised a semi-tone.

Finally, Lydian is the only mode in which the subdominant 4/3 is replaced by the higher tone 729/512, which is not called the subdominant, but rather has been dubbed the tritone, and is also sometimes called sharp 4.
Dorian tones and tones of other modes which differ from those of Dorian are shaded.
Dorian is surrounded by modes having increasing numbers of lower or higher tones as indicated at the right.

 The Ancient Musical Modes: What Were They?
When Plato said the Dorian mode sounds sincere, and Aristotle said that it avoids extremes, they perhaps meant that there are no 1 1/2-step intervals, and/or that the upper tetrachord matches the lower tetrachord and/or that the tonic would usually fall on one of the middle strings.
The Dorian mode settles the mind and is gravest and manliest and "avoids extremes".
Dorian is E to E on the white keys, Phrygian is D to D on the white keys, Lydian is the major, Aeolian is still the natural minor, Mixolydian is B to B, etc. Credits Pythagoras with introducing the octave as two tetrachords a fifth apart.

The dorian mode is built on the second step of the major scale, using the same notes.
This scale, like the dorian mode, is also similar to the minor scale, except that the second step in the phrygian mode is lowered by a half step.
The phrygian mode is used occasionally over a minor seventh chord, although often the chord is written as m7b9 as a hint to the improviser that the phrygian scale is to be used.

 Marks of the Dorian family   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-08)
So we see, that it is not the Dorian scale itself, nor even the melodic relationship between the Dorian twin scales, which are responsible for the actual effects of "Drunken Sailor", as well as the harmonic distance between their tonics.
As we have argued, a subdominant (IV) usually refers to the thoughts of the acting subject, and by turning the C chord from a tonic in measure 12 into a subdominant in measure 13, the song's protagonist is bringing himself virtually into the mind of his lover.
Most of the times, however, the label "mode" or the adjective "modal" is used to refer to songs when next to the tonic one or more other notes play an important role — sometimes even as a cotonic — in structuring the tune.

 Dorian Mode in Jazz Improvisation
Each mode has defining scale degrees; eg a Dorian in D differs from a major scale of D in that the third and seventh degree of the scale are minor.
Although it is arguably correct to use the key signature that gives the correct number of sharps or flats, it is often less confusing to notate a Dorian as an Aeolian with the sixth degree raised as an accidental where it occurs, as you would with a melodic minor.
Using this method a Dorian mode whose root note is G has 2 two flats not one, and the E naturals that occur are notated with a natural sign.

This mode is quite common in flamenco music and is often referred to as the "Spanish" mode.
The Aeolian mode is identical to the natural minor scale of tonal music.
Locrian, the theoretical mode, is identical to Aeolian, except its 2nd and 5th scale degrees are flattened.

 Modes
Modes (scales) are patterns of notes that move by half-steps (2 notes next to one another on the piano) and whole-steps (2 notes separated by a note on the piano).
This is the most widely used mode You can play it by starting on D (the white key between the two fl keys) and play just the white keys to the next D.
Modes have not been used a lot in the last 200 years.

 THE DORIAN MODE (Guitar News Weekly #257, August 11, 2003 - (c) GuitarSite.com)
Dorian is closely related to minor pentatonic and only differs from a minor scale in that it has a major sixth interval.
Simple, the harmonized dorian mode has a major triad in the IV chord position instead of a minor triad like the minor scale.
So the harmonized dorian mode gives you a major IV chord instead of the minor IV chord in the harmonized minor scale.

Locrian mode would be the C-final mode, but the C on the chanter is the most strangely tuned of all, with no other note having any detectable harmonic relationship to it.
The six-note modes of Scottish music can all be seen as different modes of the white-note pitch set with B (ti) left out, or alternatively as its transposition down a fourth, the set with F (fa) left out, which also fits the white notes.

Let us define a mode as a scale within a family of scales that are related by their step patterns.
We can derive the modes of a scale by moving the first step of a step pattern to the end, and repeating until we return to the first scale we started with.
So we note that the dorian mode is the 2nd mode of the major scale.

You could stay at that position of the Aeolian mode, but instead of starting with the E note, maybe play the C note and the notes of that chord, which is C Lydian, C to C in G major.
E to E is the Aeolian mode, but you don’t have to play from E to E. Play from C to C over the C chord or G to G over the G chord.
The Dorian mode is in yellow and the E Aeolian mode is in Red.

Note that this D Dorian Mode is played with a D note in the background.
To play this mode in the key of C (like you did in lesson 10), start the first note of the mode on the 10th fret.
So, your new D Dorian Mode would consist of the notes D, E, F, G, A, B, C, D. This is a very useful Mode, so I recommend extra work at memorizing it.

 Music Theory: Jazz Scales: Major Scale Harmony: Dorian Mode
The dorian mode is the second mode of the major scale.
Since the dorian is built on the second degree of the major scale, using the dorian mode over a ii chord results in a completely diatonic scale:
If the dorian mode is used over either of the other minor chords in a major key (the iii and vi chords), the scale will contain notes that are not diatonic to the key.

The Dorian scale is considered by many to be a preferred scale used in rock styles because it one of its characteristics is that it builds tension, as we will see in some of the examples.
Also, in hearing the Dorian Mode, you will notice that it is minor sounding, which makes it ideally suited for rock styles.
The diatonic Chords for the A Dorian scale are as follows and the sequence is Ami, Bmi, C MA, D MA, Emi, F#diminished, GmA and back to Ami.

Generally, you would not consider D dorian as a scale to be played against a major chord.
Think about this -- D dorian is derived from the key of C. D phrygian is derived from the key of B. D natural minor is derived from the key of F. You can use any of those three scales/modes over a D minor (DFA) groove.
Most of the time a mode is demonstrated from its root to its root octave to define its sound to the student's ear.

You have played a C major scale, but the dorian mode is exactly the same thing, just starting on the second note of the scale, which in this case is D. Now here is a question you are going to hate...

One of my favorite uses of the Dorian mode, which is primarily a minor sounding scale, is to use it in combination with the standard blues scale.
The first is the fingering for the A Dorian mode and the second series of notes is the fingering for the A blues scale.
Remember that we are in the key of A and that the Dorian mode is primarily minor sounding.

All of these modes were built from the notes in the C major scale (white keys on the piano).
The plagal mode was related to the authentic mode in that it used the same notes and ended on the same "finalis" (final note), but the range of the melody was different.
A dorian scale is the scale that begins on the second step of the major scale and keeps the major scale key signature.

 dorian - type of musical mode or scale
Boethius, in his description of ancient Greek usage, stated that the dorian mode was a musical scale which would be represented in modern form as the octave-species from E to E, in ascending order thus ("t" = whole-tone, "s" = semitone):
Note that this example illustrates the diatonic genus -- the various ancient Greek modes had variant interval structures, depending on the genus and shade.
In ecclesiastical and modern usage, dating from the incorrect application of Boethius's names to the system of church modes in the Alia Musica (c.870), the dorian mode is the diatonic octave-species from D to D, in ascending order thus ("t" = whole-tone, "s" = semitone):

 Guitar Nine Records - Guest Column: How To Get A Hip Soundin` Dorian Mode
The Dorian mode is the second mode of any Major scale.
For an example, let's take A Dorian: A B C D E F# G A. Take the fifth degree which is E and play E harmonic minor over an A minor 7, 9,11, 13.
The E harmonic minor scale is: E F# G A B C D# E. If you compare the notes of the two scales, you'll notice just one little switch that goes from an original D (fourth degree) to a D# (flat 5) (the 'blue note' of the pentatonic scale).

 Lesson 6: *a' la Mode - Lydian, Mixolydian, Dorian, Aeolian, - Jemsite
The easiest way to explain a Mode is to say that it uses a Major or Minor scale and alters one or more of the spaces between pitches.
For instance, the Mixolydian mode is based on the Major scale.
So in short, a Mixolydian mode is creating by lowering the 7 of the parallel major scale one half step.
