    In the first video (@ 2:11) you mention the A Dorian is a minor scale with a major 6th. What is scale you are referring to, A major? In this case, A has 3 sharps…F#, C#, G# – so we see here the b3rd and b7th when comparing the A Dorian to A major…is this correct evaluating? or are you referring to the relative minor which has no #s or bs…(flats) I ask is because there is no mention of the relative minor scale in which case the G and C are naturals already. Thanks for any clarification…

      Thanks so much for the question, this kind of stuff was confusing for me for years, sorry, it’s math. I said “An A minor scale with a major 6″. An A minor scale has no sharps or flats. (It’s the same as C Major). So A Dorian is an A minor scale with sharp the sixth… F#, that’s all. Easier to see on a blackboard.

    Hi hope all is well. Not to be a bother, but is there any way you could tab out the entire Russ Parrish lick. In the video you say to refer to the tab, but it doesn’t show the entire lick. Thanks in advance.
