Guided listening: The White Keys Part 2 - “Bloom”.

Watch and play along with these annotated videos featuring songs that all use scales that feature only the white keys.

Radiohead - “Bloom”

The D Dorian Mode uses the exact same notes as C Major, this is known as the relative Major.

The difference is that the D Dorian Mode starts at the 2nd degree of the C major scale and therefore has different intervals on the 3rd and 7th steps which results in a more minor feel.

Let’s check out an example from Radiohead performing in the D Dorian Mode.
