I've to admit, I didn't practice this at all, just plain sight reading. But I wish you all a merry Christmas and a happy new year.

@bocaholly Thank you 🙂

 

@BillyG Thanks. I'm not great in music theory unfortunately, so I don't know what mode it's in.

@HP - depends on how much you need or want to know - if when you play, you can "map it all from sheet to the finger board" - well - it probably doesn't matter - but - understanding modes isn't all that difficult - for instance - we all kind of know that tunes in a major mode ( Ionian mode ) sound "different" from tunes in a minor scale ( aeolian mode ) - if it piques your interest - here's a good resource - https://www.basicmusictheory.com/e-dorian-mode

That site can pretty much show you the scale notes to play in any possible key or mode you care to think of.... (admittedly, I guess, you probably do need to know what you're asking for though...  lol )  !

Hey - thanks again for you post and your playing ! drummer

Thanks for the link @BillyG I'll check it out later. My teacher gave me a lot to work on over Christmas, so I'm pretty busy practice wise so I don't really know how much I can get through at the moment. But it looks interesting indeed.

If any of you were wondering what tune it was, it's God Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen, although I probably played it in the wrong key.

I thought it was a lovely piece, especially coming straight from the paper. 

We have different modes in my part of the US. playing mode and drinking mode. coffee, tea, beer what have you.

Keep up the good work, Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year to you.
