While not the first television performance by the Liverpool four-piece, the Beatles’ first US television appearance on The Ed Sullivan Show has been shown in classrooms, presentations, and to children by fan parents ever since it happened all those years ago.
That’s right — we sent an even Better Now, out-of-this-WRLD probe past all the FEFE’s and ZEZE’s that were Meant to Be in the Top 5 of 2018’s Billboard Hot 100 charts, and what we got back was a tally of data and stats Grande enough to satiate all you Nonstop audiophiles’ consonance curiosity. Nice for What? Nice for showing any Childish Young Bunny how to craft a song XXXTensive enough to bang its way into a Top 40 slot, next year and beyond.
Very similar tonalities used this year, as compared to 2017. The major mode gained a little ground this year, chalking one more song, but it’s those sneaky-sultry minor modes that are still dominating. Worth a shout are the upticks in Lydian and Phrygian, and it’s also interesting that harmonic minor scales doubled their representation from four songs to eight. Maybe the V chord is coming back in style after all?

Another approach that works for some players is to use the C major scale on those two strings (6th and 5th) to map out the other notes as referential to them. If your aptitude for memorization is quite high, this would be quicker.
In essence, we’re saving the label that work of shopping around. On the other hand, we also master the tracks specifically for vinyl and offer graphic design services to create the cover artwork well before a pre-order campaign ends so that all the materials and files are ready to be sent to the pressing plant as soon as the run order is fulfilled.

Obviously, we can apply the Dorian mode to II- V I as well. Here is a line cliché illustrating how you can navigate the basic changes using the Dorian shape we learned earlier.
Unfortunately, it’s going to be pretty sour against the G string at 64/27 Hz. So maybe you should just tune the G string a major third below your new B, at 12/5 Hz. Now the G and B strings sound great together, but the G is out of tune against the D string at 16/9 Hz. So maybe D should be a fourth below G… but then the D string will be out of tune against A. If you tune the A based on your new D, then it’ll be out of tune against the low E. And if you tune the low E based on your new A, then it’ll be out of tune against the high E.
