Watch the The Modes online guitar lesson by Robben Ford from Chord Revolution: Foundations
I'm going to play the chords to a song called "All Along the Watchtower". It was written by Bob Dylan, but more famously played by Jimi Hendrix. I want to point you towards the harmony. Something you might find interesting to his particular song - If I were to harmonize the D major scale, D would be my one chord, E minor would be the two chord, F# minor would be the three chord, G would be the four chord, A would be the five chord, B minor would be the six chord. Then of course, the C# diminished is the seven chord, and D again. "All Along the Watchtower" is played in the key of B minor and never in the song is a D played. If you were to actually say this correctly, "All Along the Watchtower" is in the key of D major. So point being, all the things that you're going to play in the key of B minor to "All Along the Watchtower" are all going to come straight out of the D major scale. And we'll demonstrate that for you here.
