Weird topics today- let me add one
I can pick up things in major modes very quickly. I pick them up quickly. Jigs, easy. Hornpipes easy. Reels tough.Jigs, hornpipes- Remember them. I can improvise on them.
Lets go to minor mode. Dorian. Lydian. I can sight read the spots. (and listen to the tunes for the by ear group)
Have trouble remembering the minor mode stuff (A Dorian love it, struggle with it. Frustrating as hell. 6 to the bar easier than 8 to the bar minor mode drives up my blood pressure).
Any one else have issues like this? Just looking for thoughts.keep the abuse to a minimum.
I know that alot of folks can play anything and will make fun of this. My fid friends can play the minor modes in their sleep. Can’t figure that out.
If us box players are good at structure as accused :-) How do the fids excel with the minor mode stuff?
