Did you enjoy learning about dorian scales? They start on "re". We also learned that there are several famous songs that use the dorian scale. Some of them include...
- Drunken Sailor
- Sailor's Song
- Beat it! by Michael Jackson
- Smoke on the Water by Deep Purple
- Eleanor Rigby by the Beatles
- Scarborough Fair by Simon and Garfunkel
Ask your parents about these songs! They might have a recording. You can also look them up on YouTube, with permission from your parents of course.
Below is the recording of "Drunken Sailor" I promised you. You are welcome to listen to it and download it to your computer or iPod. Try playing it on your instrument. It starts on a B. That is first finger on the A string (or 4th finger on the G string if you play bass).
Post a comment about which song you will try playing or any comment about these songs or the dorian scale!
See you at school,
P.S. Does anyone know anything about the artist of this picture? His name is Winslow Homer. He is NOT related to Homer Simpson!
