DORIAN ADD b5, is the 2nd mode of the Bebop Major.
I've been loving goofing around with the Voodoo Blues Scale since I discovered it a while ago. I love the 6 mixing Dorian Mode overtones with blues colours, so I thought it was time to just throw a b5 into the Dorian Mode and see how that sounds.
I was all set to map it all out from scratch when I realised that strictly speaking it was already on here because it is one of the modes of Bebop Major.
The Dorian Mode contains the intervals: 1,2 b3,4, 5, 6,b7 and adding a b5 to this to give a bluesy feeling results in: 1,2,b3,4,b5,5,6,b7.
So what's all this VOODOO DORIAN nonsense then?
It just so cool that it needs a more rock n roll name than DORIAN ADD b5...
So here's VOODOO DORIAN!
