  • Hello friends! Dallton Santos here.

    In this lesson you will learn how to mix two modes and sound more interesting!
    I choosed five of my favorite licks!

    The backingtrack is in the key A7.

    A7 is in the Key o D, so this is a Mixolidian Mode.
    The notes: A B C# D E F# G

    This is the correct aplication of the scale over this A7.

    Now, let´s use the "wrong" scale over the A7, and play Am Dorian.
    The notes: A B C D E F# G

    The magic is that both modes works on this kind of style like: blues, rock, country..
    Sounds cool, specially when you mix!

    I´ll show what I´m talking about in the licks!
    Get your guitar and have fun!
