in term of theory I know what’s dorian mode, Lydian, etc etc
But I am really stuck in “how can I make feel this melody like Dorian mode?”…
In this case, Dorian mode, we know that the particular note are min 3rd and maj 6th.
So, my question is this, I want to compose in dorian and wanna give the dorian flavour to this track…
for instance we are in Dm Dorian
Should I play a bass line all in D and in the middle range various chords and at the top the melody line with a lot of 3rd and 6th?
Or should I play like this progression: Dm - G - Am - Am7
so the bass plays the root note, and the melody plays the 3rd and the 6th, F and B, over Dm to make this Dorian flavour and when it’s on G we can play guide tone or chord tone etc etc?
