  • Hi GMC Pals! This lesson is all about including different motifs, phrases, and modes in the same solo. It´s vital to know all the positions of the Major scale modes by heart, since we´re going to play our chosen melodies based on those positions.

    In the beginning, I´m mixing the Db Minor Pentatonic with the A Aeolian scale, and then the F# Mixolydian. After that, when I go onto the next part, I use the A Lydian scale and then the G Mixolydian.

    When you´re composing, pay attention to these "mixing" techniques. It´s also very important and useful to sing the melody along while playing the chords, and to sing the chords aloud as well. Every guitar player should know how to sing in tune. It´s very important if you
    want to get the most out of your playing/composing, so practice that.
