Brief course description
In this course, you’re going to learn how to play all 7 of the modes on the guitar. If you’ve ever wanted to play all over the fret-board, improvise a killer guitar solo, or get better at playing single-note lines, then you’ll find that this course is what you’re looking for. The video lectures are direct and to-the-point so that you can start playing all of the modes as soon as possible. This isn’t an abstract or theoretical course, the point is to learn the modes and then get playing as soon as possible.
The whole reason that you’re looking at a course like this is that you want to take your playing to the next level, so at the end of each section you’ll be able to play/practice/solo using the forms that you have learned for each mode. Since everyone learns in a different way, you’ll not only have lifetime, unlimited access to the lecture videos, but you’ll have downloadable PDF files of the modes written out in guitar tablature.
The objective of this course is straight-forward. You’ll learn to play all 7 of the modes, and for each mode you’ll learn 2 different forms. One form will cover 2 octaves and the other form will cover 3 octave forms. All of these forms can be moved to different keys, and you’ll see in the course how to move them. If that seems a little technical, all it means is that if you want to play a D MIxolydian mode, or an A Lydian mode, or a G Ionian mode, or B-flat double-secret Dorian (ok, I made that last one up), you’ll be in great shape.
