Do any of these describe you?
- – You’ve heard about the Modes for a while, and have found a few scales that are used to represent modes, but in playing them you still aren’t sure how it goes together.
- – You’ve found the discussion of modes and peoples opinions, to be conflicting and contradictory, and seldom find a good way to apply what you want to understand about Modes to the guitar.
- – You have a list of modes/scales, but theres still a sense of being “boxed in” and your playing is slow and tentative, or you are in a musical “rut”
- – All the scales you know, have finite beginning and ending points to the “patterns” and you cannot play in all directions all over the neck
Here’s the question:
If you identified with any of the above descriptions:
Can you play modal scale shapes in any direction, up down, back and forth at any time at an improvisational speed, in any key?
Can you play your modal scales moving forward and backwards over any single, 2, 3 or 4 strings, at improvisational speed without making mistakes, in any key?
If you answered yes to both, then congratulations. Many people think that such achievements would take months and years of study and practice. We believe that our Lead Guitar Phase 2 approach to playing is a superior way to learning lead guitar and fretboard navigation, coupled with a more complete understanding of what Modes are, what they are not, and how to add those melodic ideas to your own playing. There are benefits to “grimoire”s, encyclopedias and the like, and we do not want to discourage anyone in the study or application of these, but we find they are both very limiting, in that there are only certain directions that it allows the average user to go with their playing.
If you answered no to any of the above, consider enrolling in the Lead Guitar Phase 2 Module, following the successful completion of the other Modules. You will be able to Play Modes on the Guitar in any direction on any string or sets of strings in any Key.
In short, you will be able to answer YES to both questions above!
This is important, because mastery of that skill allows you total freedom on the fretboard of the guitar, as well as a total Approach to new melodic possibilities and how to use them within your playing styles. If you have benefitted from the other Modules of the course, then at the conclusion of this, you will have achieved total mastery of understanding all Pentatonic, Blues, Major, Minor and Modal scales, starting on any note any string, and played all over the neck.
This is a very in-depth course, but made so that it is easy to follow using a combination of Video Lectures, Drills, Applications, Homework, and Tests. For those of you interested in getting their Notes on the Neck down, we are offering our Notes Module with a Money Back Guarantee, for a limited time, for $30.00. This equates to $5.00 per lesson (6 lessons + test).
