Interesting that during an Academy visit here in LA they are focussing on the diagonal fingerings - so for Dorian that would be:


1 1 2 4 - 1 1 2 4 - 1 2 4 - 1 1 2 4


for two octaves where - represents going up a string.


I rarely practise these scales or modes straight up or down anymore but, if you do, use a variety of fingerings and try this one out which opens up a lot of the neck - and play it ascending and descending.


And thanks Andy for encouraging me to dig these old mode threads out.




If anyone's interested I could do some more at some point.
