This next scale form I have called the "Dorian Form". This is not a universal name, but it is useful in helping you differentiate between the 7 different scale forms presented in this lesson. Dorian is the name of the mode that is built from the 2nd degree of a major scale. The first note in the scale form below is the 2nd degree of the major scale. (See modes 101) If you play this scale form starting on the fret indicated, these are the notes of a G major scale.
