I think the material is excellent. I’ve benefited so much. I’ve now begun to improvise with some confidence and have written songs that feel authentic. I can now develop musically in a broad and rich way. Your work has illuminated an exciting path forward.– Roger

These final modal exercises will change the way you play the guitar forever.

By taking you through every mode, starting with either the Minor Pentatonic or the Major Pentatonic, you teach your hands how music work on the fretboard.

Once completed you will see the modes as clearly as a painter experience colours. Music will soon come through you, not just from you.

The routine to master the major modes moves like this:

  • Maj Pent – add #4 -Maj Pent – add maj7 – Maj Pent – Lydian
  • Maj Pent – add 4 – Maj Pent – add maj7 – Maj Pent – Ionian
  • Maj Pent – add 4 – Maj Pent – add b7 – Maj Pent – Mixolydian

Once this is completed – stop practising the major modes, start practising the minor modes!
