I know mixolidyan is a scale but thats all i know lol. ( i prob know how to play the scale too without knowing what its called) i dont understand what modes are... are they positions? same with the arpeggios! With practice i know i will play the lesson but just need to understand all the theory behind it all. I love blues and play endlessly to backing tracks but usually only using the petatonic scales i know in diff positions. this lesson could open up my improv to a whole new level of understanding! cheers in advance -------------------- I need more fingers!

I love blues and play endlessly to backing tracks but usually only using the petatonic scales i know in diff positions. this lesson could open up my improv to a whole new level of understanding! cheers in advanceStarting with dominant 7th - that is really a chord construction formula - you take the 1st of the scale, the 3rd of the scale, the 5th of the scale and a flattened 7th, and that gives you a dominant 7th chord, although in the lesson it is played as an arpeggio which I am sure you are aware is a just a chord in which you play the notes separately one after another. The roman numerals just stand in for the numbers if you haven't seen that notation before - and there is a lesson on degrees of the scale here. Looking at a specific example, using the C Major scale. The notes in the scale are C,D,E,F,G,A,B. The 1st, 3rd and 5th are C,E,and G - together they make a regular major chord. If you add a flattened 7th, you make a dominant 7th chord (often just called a 7th). SO we take our 7th note - B - and flatten it to get Bb, add that to the other notes to get C,E,G,Bb, which are the notes for the chord or arpeggio of C7.Modes are a little more complex - Eat-Sleep-andJam pointed you to the lesson, its well worth a read. In this specific case, we are using Mixolydian mode, which because of its constriction fits very well over a 7th chord, they are kind of like a matched set.If you don't have time to look at the modes lesson, a simple way of looking at modes is that they are an altered scale. In the case of Mixolydian, the regular major scale has its 7th replaced with a flattened 7th, which fits in nicely with the flat 7th on the dominant 7th chord. -------------------- Check out my Instructor profile Live long and prosper ...My Stuff:Electric Guitars : Ibanez Jem7v, Line6 Variax 700, Fender Plus Strat with 57/62 Pickups, Line6 Variax 705 BassAcoustic Guitars : Taylor 816ce, Martin D-15, Line6 Variax Acoustic 300 NylonEffects : Line6 Helix, Keeley Modded Boss DS1, Keeley Modded Boss BD2, Keeley 4 knob compressor, Keeley OxBloodAmps : Epiphone Valve Jnr & Head, Cockburn A.C.1, Cockburn A.C.2, Blackstar Club 50 Head & 4x12 Cab

I can be show something and can play it , yet sit me down with theory and it just does not stay in my head. (man i played piano for 7 years too!) I am very good at playing by ear though !! lolI just want to break out of pentatonics and use other patterns to improvise with. Eg, if im playing in Am what other patterns or scales can i play other than the 5 pentatonic patterns that i now can play in my sleep? My old guitar tutor used to tell me to use 3 note per string scales but i dont really know any other than the major scale that has some strings with 3 notes. Im going to have to knuckle down to some serious theory swatting later thanks again Andrew, im sure i will be back with more questions! also tanks to eat - sleep anjam! (what a name !) -------------------- I need more fingers!

(what a name !)Any time - to add variety to your playing I would definitely also check out the regular Major and Minor scales next, then add modes when you are happy with those. Three-note-per string scales I am going to write a lesson on eventually -------------------- Check out my Instructor profile Live long and prosper ...My Stuff:Electric Guitars : Ibanez Jem7v, Line6 Variax 700, Fender Plus Strat with 57/62 Pickups, Line6 Variax 705 BassAcoustic Guitars : Taylor 816ce, Martin D-15, Line6 Variax Acoustic 300 NylonEffects : Line6 Helix, Keeley Modded Boss DS1, Keeley Modded Boss BD2, Keeley 4 knob compressor, Keeley OxBloodAmps : Epiphone Valve Jnr & Head, Cockburn A.C.1, Cockburn A.C.2, Blackstar Club 50 Head & 4x12 Cab
