Hi everyone,

I was recently looking at "Norwegian Wood", and learnt of its parallel with All Blues (the All Blues as Miles played it). They're also great examples of the Mixolydian and Dorian modes.

So I've put together a harmonic look at the two tunes, and also a look at the jazz side of All Blues, its Dorian lines, and applying the mode in Song For My Father.

Lots in there, and if you're a bit interested click here to have a better look.

Hi Rob,

Thanks so much for all your effort and generosity in putting this together. I'm going to have some fun trying out some of your ideas with the Dorian scale. Thanks also for showing us that Norwegian Wood is (nearly) a contrafact of All Blues. I'll definitely make use of that the next time I play All Blues.

All the best,
Rob

Appreciate that thanks guys.

I'm a bit of a "harmony geek", so may be guilty of delving a bit deeper than's needed. Having said that, I'm big on making sure that a student (or myself) is aware of their surroundings in a chart. If you're just playing changes, it can sound a bit like that. Some can get away with it to an extent, but applying some musicality can save on a few licks and keep the interest of the listener. Hence the idea of using "motifs".
This particular post finishes on that idea, but applying the dorian mode to it.

Rob
