Watch the A Dorian Mode online guitar lesson by Brad Carlton from Guitar Lab: Dorian Dominance
This lesson presents a rather unusual layout of the A Dorian mode in that we will only be playing two notes per string. This will create a long diagonal line from right to left on the fingerboard. There are many advantages of learning this layout especially when thinking in terms of arpeggios. There will be seven forms of this two note per string layout; each one being labeled according to the lowest scale degree on the sixth string.
