Random thoughts from music theory

Filed under: General — codeman38 @ 11:46 pm

Earlier today, I thought of a good mnemonic device to remember the six main medieval musical modes in order, starting with the major scale:

“I Don’t Particularly Like Modal Analysis.”
(Ionian, Dorian, Phrygian, Lydian, Mixolydian, Aeolian)

I didn’t throw Locrian (the 7th mode) in there, because it’s very rarely used… though you’re welcome to post your own ideas in the comments.
