  • Hi Guys,

    Welcome to my lesson No. 77 called "Combining Modes in a Solo".
    This lesson perfectly demonstrates how you could use the modes in a musical way.

    I use the following modes in my solo:

    A Mixolydian
    E Dorian
    C Lydian
    E Aeolian
    F# Aeolian
    F Lydian

    The structure of the Jam track:

    A Part 0:01-0:44
    ||: A7 | % | Em7 | % :||4x

    B Part 0:45-1:03
    | CMaj7 | % | Em79 | % |
    | CMaj7 | % | F#m7/11| F6/9 |

    Outro 01:04-1:13
    | Em79 | % | % |
    Have fun! ;-)

    Final words

    Cheers - Guido
