I just finished another sheet of ‘ukulele scales. This time Dorian was one of the few (two?) remaining on my “scales to-do list” (the last will be locrian, but it isn’t a contender for one of the prettiest or useful sounds, so it can wait). The dorian makeup from a major scale is: 1 2 b3 4 5 6 b7.
Santana is kind of like “Mr. Dorian”. He uses the sound a lot and one of the world’s most famous dorian examples is “Oye Como Va”.
