HI THERE;
i saw your video a major solo clean.... and you started down something at the 9th and 12th fret
and so i thought your the best to ask this question im looking for answers for since a long time:
how to put the mode patterns together over the fretboard??? like all the mode patterns in their ranking down the fretboard and they go together like this very huge patter all over the fretboard as often seen??
can i improvise in b phrygian over a g major progression (cause g maj=b phry
or so) ??????????????
or a g major jamtrack imporvisation...can i play in the b phrygian pattern???or the a dorian pattern???? and so on?????

like in your lesson you played in a major; the ionian pattern is at the 5th fret you played down the 7th 9th and 12th frets...
did you then play in the b dorian C#phrygian d lydian patterns and so on?????
please gelp me to get this clearer

your marc

It's all about the notes, not patterns. if you watch your G maj ,it has the exact same notes as E minor, etc. The same notes can be found all over the guitar.

But yes, if you have C maj, you can also play the A minor pattern, or the D dorian, or the E phrygian ,or F lydian, etc.

This, however, are all the same notes, and thus it's the same scale.

IF you want to modulate, you have to change the notes of your root. However, I don't think you're ready for modes yet tongue.gif

The same scale apart from the root note, and that in fact makes all the difference! This is a confusing area, and its best left until you have some experience with scales in general ... don't confuse modes with patterns, they are very different. Learn all the patterns for a particular scale, say the major scale, but don't think of them as modes because that misses the point really - modes come later when you have a firm understanding of the major scale and all of its patterns.
