Thnx David, I think this just might be what can help me get out of the "box"
great lesson! please keep the modal stuff coming, until there is nothing left!!! i need it!
Very clean and simple explanation for chord progression regarding to your lesson before David,
Hi Dave, another great modal lesson
Completely independantly I wrote a lesson on modal chord sequences over the weekend, based on your earlier lesson - it complements this lesson pretty well so I would envourage anyone who wants to dig into the theory a little more to have a look at it here.
just what I wanted to know
is that a hurley shirt? nice
I´ve been working on the CAGED system and the scaleforms and I found out that:
C-form scale got the same notes as Phrygian the only difference is that the C-form scale has 2 notes on the B string and Phrygian got 3 notes on the B string and 2 notes on the high E string.
C-form = Phrygian
A-form = Mixolydian
G-form = Aeolian
E-form = Locrian
D-form = Dorian
Am I right or is there more to it?
Great lesson, I am starting to untangle this topic which has always been an area I overlooked (avoided really). But, I see this topic is essential in one developing into a mature, competent player. My question is the fingering, in particular the Ionian and Dorian scale in this lesson. It is different than one of your previous lessons. I realize the notes are the ssame, but is better to learn the box construction here (3 notes per string)? Another instructor, Pavel, remarked that the 3-note construction is better for shredding. However, Andrew's theory lessons (also valualbe) center around the traditonal boxes. I guess they are traditional, the most prevelant anyway. I know this a long-winded way to ask a simple question, but I am just think strategically about which way will payoff better.
I guess I would say please yourself with the fingering - by the time you are ready for modes you are also ready to start thinking about fingering strategies to suit your playing - I used traditional boxes because they are easy to relate to, but the ultimate aim is to move away from boxes either traditional or 3nps altogether.
I just had this conversation with one of my students at the school I teach at.
You need to be comfortable with both positions to be complete.
Basically, 3 note per string shapes are great to shred because the way they are built are comfortabble to play shred friendly scale patterns.
The other positions are great to create melodic ideas and make you focus more on the important notes of the scale and arpeggios..
Learn both and you'lll be ahead of the game. :-)
Thanks to you david I dont need to practice these so much I'm reading all the lessons and thinking about them and the theory around them I wont remember it all this morning but. If I analyze all those explanations with care and thaught I'll just play the theory without thinking its all making sense thank you Much!
