Mystery Solved!!! (comment walls not indexed in site searches)
Site QUESTIONS ? How do I...?
About a week ago I posted a topic in the Site Questions forum, as I was having trouble trying to search for an explanation given by Greg Gunner with regard to parallel modes and relative modes. trouble with search
Today I happened upon it! This is what Greg said:
" Modal scales that share the same root note (i.e., D Mixolydian, D Aeolian, D Ionian, and D Dorian) are called Parallel Modes . They share the same root note, but do not share all of the same notes. They do not share a common key signature. There are three other modes (Phrygian Mode, Lydian Mode, and Locrian Mode), but they are seldom used.
Modes that share a common key signature and all the same notes are called Relative Modes . For example, D Ionian, B Aeolian, E Dorian, and A Mixolydian are Relative Modes. All of these modes consist of the notes found in the D Major Scale (D, E, F#, G, A, B, C#, D). They would all use a common key signature to indicate which notes are played natural, flat, or sharp. You will notice, the Relative Modes share the same notes, but in each case they begin with a different root note."
This is where I found it...It was below all of the underlined topics in the Notes & Drone group in a section called Comment Wall and it was in Greg's 2nd comment (9:02 p.m.) about 2/3 way down the page. The whole explanation is good, if anyone would like to read it.
Now I'm wondering how things get into the Comment Wall section if anyone knows. Surely, this was part of a topic. He was responding to a question Glenda had asked which appears at the bottom of the page.
