michael sam wild Posted December 23, 2008 Share Posted December 23, 2008 I've been exploring tunes again as I'm trying to teach myself musical theory I started with 'Northern Lass' an air or waltz tune in 3/4 in A minor that I first heard on 'Beggar Boy of the North' LP from Cookfinger Jack in the 70s and then from Brian Peters in 2005 on his CD Anglophilia It goes back to playford 1669 I started by putting down 3 crotchets (8th notes ) per bar , in a regular fashion, then working out the tune as it sounded to my ear. The tune seems to throw up a b flat quite naturally and I'd like someone to explain how that happens in the key of A minor Can anyone explain A min Aeolian or A min Dorian first of all?
