SOUNDS OF THE MODES | Guitar Improvisations With Scales

‘Sounds of the modes’ was made to show the use of the modes at a simple and practical level in the hopes of breaking the mystique and any perceived complexity to those starting out using the modes in their own musical endevours.

A guitar improvisation and interpretation of the musical modes and running through the modes in sequence – Ionian (natural major), Dorian, Phrygian, Lydian, Mixolydian, Aeolian (natural minor) and Locrian.

The guitar scale of each mode is also shown on screen during the guitar improvisation. The guitar scales are arranged to a three-note-per-string arrangement which is popular among many guitar players.
