Going Modal: The Money Note!

Continuing our FREE series of monthly lessons on Modes:

Melodies have what I call, “money notes.” The “money note” in a melody is a note that is particularly strong, definitive &/or resolved-feeling in relation to the chord being played under it. The money note is usually played on a strong beat &/or it is stressed dynamically in the line, or it is the final note in a phrase, i.e. a resolution.
