Diatonic Theory - Prerequisites


Pre-requisite: This is an advanced explanation of musical concepts. If you don't have a basic understanding of Intervals, Scales, Chord Construction, and basic Modes this might be like stepping off the curb and falling in a pit.

Please visit my web site (http://lessons.mikedodge.com) and read the Beginner To Advanced Series

Those lessons explain much of the basis you should have before delving into these concepts.

For Diatonic Theory I will start with the term "Modes" and some concepts, and misconceptions, since a lot of people start with the patterns before they get to theory behind the Modes.
