The quickest way to master all modes

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 colors. 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 practicing the major modes, start practicing the minor modes!
