Lost In Music Chords: Learn the progressions!


This is a very interesting chord progression, it’s like we’re in both D Aeolian (chord VI) and D Dorian (chord II) at the same time.

If it’s D Dorian, we should have had a Bm7b5. If it’s Aeolian, we get a Bbmaj7.

If it’s D Dorian, we get a G (chord V), if it’s Aeolian, we should have a Gm (chord II).

Basically, what we have here is a modal interchange on a loop where D is always Dorian, until that Bbmaj7 when D is Aeolian.

The placement of the chords in the bar, combined with this modal interchange drives the song forward, making the audience dance all night.
