  • Kalinka?

    Okay, so I just started figuring out how to play the Russian folk song, Kalinka on guitar.

    Now I really have to ask.. what crazy scale / mode is this song in? So far I've found the patterns to fit into four different diatonic modes, changing a lot, so I'm guessing off the bat it's not diatonic at all? I don't know.. I just can't seem to figure this song out.

    Anyone have any ideas?

    I'm not hearing anything crazy at all. I'm hearing a harmonic minor scale in the first part and basically a major /harmonic minor in the second part.

      That makes more sense.. I think was I trying to think within the diatonic scale.

        It's a beautiful piece.
