Hi to all,
i recently watched this video of a fusion player named Theodore Ziras, and he played an improvisation througgh a backing track which had a progression of Bmin7 and Bmin6. He explained that he uses the bmin pentatonic scale, the b dorian, and the arpegios of bmin7 which he said that it was the relative arpegio for b dorian. He did use these scales while soloing and really sounded great. Now i understand that the bmin pentatonic scale would sound right over the progression. And my queastions are:
Why did the b dorian mode sounded better when he played it over the progression knowing the b dorian mode is the second mode of the AMaj scale? isnt it like he played the Amaj scale in the Bmin7 chord progression which i dont know why, still sounded good.
And how does the Bmin7 arpegio became the relative arpegio for b dorian? i really can't understand how that works, I'm sorry about this coz i really am confused and im not that huge on theory i just know how to play pentatonic scales and wanded to learn more about these in-depth stuff.
please help me with this, i would gladly appreciate it.
thanks and Godbless
