Move From Pentatonics to Modes – Instantly
- Are you ready to expand your palette of musical sounds?
- Are you stuck playing pentatonics and looking for something new?
- Are you daunted by the prospect of learning modes and complicated theory?
“Learn your modes” is one of the most common pieces of advice given to aspiring guitarists… but the question of how best to learn and play them them is rarely addressed.
All too often, students are given big grids of scale shapes and taught to run up and down boring patterns without much success. What’s worse is that your phrasing often becomes dull and “un-guitar-like” when you learn modes in this way.
A Better Way to Play Modes on Guitar
But there’s a much better way to learn modes, especially when you can already play pentatonic scales.
In fact, there’s a “secret” trick that the world’s greatest guitarists have been using for years to bring modal notes into their solos without losing their beautiful pentatonic phrasing.
In From Pentatonic Scales to Modes, you’ll learn how pentatonic shapes form the “skeletons” of literally any mode, and how by adding just two notes you can quickly bring modal colours into your playing while retaining classic pentatonic phrasing.
This book teaches you the most important modes of Dorian, Aeolian, Mixolydian and Major anywhere on the neck and you’ll learn hundreds of gorgeous licks along the way.
The best thing is that by learning your modes in this way, you are fully in control of which colours you add to your solos, so you can avoid clichéd patterns and mindless runs.
By the end of From Pentatonic Scales to Modes you will be playing modes with musical pentatonic phrasing and be highly selective about which notes you use in your solos.
And when you get right down to it, being choosy about your notes is what makes you a better soloist.
