Lesson 12 Chapter 2 Module 1

Listening Experiences

It is very difficult to find pure examples of songs in the Locrian mode “out in the wild,” particularly because of its unstable nature with a diminished tonic chord.

Watch this video to get the sound of Locrian in your ears.

Listen to the song "Sleepy Head" on the album "Everyday Songs With Words."
