Writing Progressions with Borrowed Chords: Songwriting Lesson [MUSIC THEORY - MODAL INTERCHANGE]
My Complete Theory and Songwriting course is NOW OUT! bit.ly/38fs0sx Thanks to my Patreon Subscribers for sponsoring these videos: bit.ly/2zFwzOO
2 mistakes- At 05:50 I accidentally forgot Dorian, and the big chart has a type on Locrian, the two chord is missing a numeral!
Modal Interchange, Borrowed Chords, and Modal Mixture all refer to the same concept of using parallel modes - modes that all start on the same tonic. In this video we explore writing chord progressions in C Major, then borrowing the chords from C Minor. We also explore other options, such as borrowing from Lydian or Phrygian, and borrowing from other keys when NOT in major.
This topic goes as deep as your knowledge of the modes. If all you know is Major and Minor, you can still get an insane amount of awesome cool chord progressions just by borrowing between them. However, the more modal knowledge you have, the easier it is to keep track of all the chords available to you in a key, and have a quick and easy way to play or write over it.
Here are the videos that I've taught to lead up to this course.
