  • Hi Everybody.

    The purpose of this lesson is to help you quickly escape from one note grouping to another. Sometimes is very difficult to switch after you get used to one note grouping. You will see when I escape from very fast 16th triplets to really slow 8th notes that have straight feel - not always an easy task.

    I made it sound neoclassical because I like the style but you can do this with any other style or chord progression. There are some of my favorite neoclassical licks played so you might find some of them useful to borrow for your own melody ideas. The scales used are just what you could expect in a neoclassical piece of music :) A harmonic and natural minor and E phrygian dominant. There is also one D dorian #4 but since it's the same scale as A harmonic minor (its 4th mode) I didn't leave the chart. This lesson is a high level of difficulty so I guess that you're already familiar with these things. One scale would be enough to show the whole thing and you can work the modes out of it yourself.

    I hope you will like this one and see you soon with some similar stuff.
