Watch the Dark Aeolian online guitar lesson by Brad Carlton from Chord Studies: Modal Progressions Vol. 1

When we apply our Quartal harmony to the Aeolian mode we hear that classic b6 sound that is what gives it the minor, dark, ominous sound that any self respecting metal head loves! Here we play it with a little cleaner sound just to be able to hear those intervals, but it is worth a go with a full blown rock sound as well.
