  • Hi GMC-ers!

    Welcome to another in series of Modal Madness. Some months ago some of you guys asked me to do another Modal Madness lesson but with a Pentatonic scale, so here it is.

    This lesson is fairly easy to play. It contains all the modes of the A pentatonic scale. The technique we use here is legato, so the lesson would be more easier to learn.

    This is a simple exercise, but the timing is very important. Use a metronome to practice this lesson, first at a slower tempo, and eventually working it up to a higher tempo. When you have it down, try to incorporate it to your own style. You might use only a few from the modes here in your own solo, but the point here is to use it whenever you can.

    In this lesson contains the following techniques:

    - Legato

    - Vibrato

    In this lesson my guitar is tuned a whole step down, that means : D, G, C, F, A, D.

    Have fun practicing!
