    Some time ago I saw a sentence which uses the first letter of each mode as a way to remember the order. I can't think of what it is... can someone remind me? I had to make up my own... I (Ionian) Don't (Dorian) Play (Phrygian) Like (Lydian) Mike Mixolydian And (Aolian) Larry (Locrian) LOL :)...

    Hi all, Ive been reading through a few posts on here and am inspired to find both a very friendly atmosphere towards eachothers ideas and problems but also an extremely high level of knowledge and understanding. On considering this, I remember a problem that I encountered some years ago when...

    just wondered if any of you could give me a tip about the berklee courses. I am technical quite advanced can reed notes but am a musical illiterate. I read about the Berkley courses and wondered if any of you participated and can share their experiences. I was especially interested in the...

    I'm currently trying to figure out modes and starting on C its Ionian, but if starting the C major scale on the 2nd note in the scale then it would be D note in the scale would be Dorian, E would be Phrygian, F would be Lydian, G would be Mixolydian, A would be Aeolian and B would be Locrian...

    I made a stream of consciousness-ish post on another forum regarding some of my thoughts about improvisation in general, and improvisation over pitch axis progressions in particular, and I thought I'd post it here in case anybody finds it interesting or helpful.

    I am trying to focus on learning how to be a shred player, however I cant really find anything useful to get me started. I have total guitars "beginners guide to shredding" but its just a handful of exercises. Does anyone have any good material they can point me in the direction of becoming a...

    The guide is coming along nicely. The modal section is almost done, and I'll start posting the sections here as they're finished. Eventually, I'll cover intervals, chord/scale construction etc. I'm not starting the guide with modes, I'm just writing it first because it's easier for me.

    Without typing 5,000 words, how does this progression work? If you're in Amin, then play a Gmaj, then a Dmin, the E should also be a minor, right? Well, there's a song I'm listening to that goes to E Major and you think it'd be a minor since A Minor is the key. I swear, I'm never going to...

    I'm wondering what is a good way and/or good resources to teach myself how to put together songs of my own. I'm really only interested in the instrumental guitar niche since that is what I am most gripped and consumed by. I haven't taken any kind of theory or anything formal, though I did have...

    Do any of you have any tips when it comes to vocals in a typical rock band? I've never tried to sing, but I'm very interested in learning to do so. Are lessons worth it? I don't need to become some opera singer, just good enough to sing in a classic rock/hard rock setting. Any help/advice would...

    I am building an application for 7 string guitars to show all the scales and modes...and was curious as to what the most widely used tunings among seven string guitarists is. Do most of you tune to a B or an A or what? What do you think the most common tuning for a seven string is? Thanks in...

    Hey guys and girls, I'm exploring some scales and i want to know how do i work out the chords to play over a certain scale. Example: Say if i'm playing a basic A major scale how do i work out what chords will fit with that scale? Is there some formula or something like that. Or do you just...

    I don't even know why I'm posting this, but I feel like telling somebody, and it's just nice to get advice from where I can get it... Anyway, long story short, it appears that I'm getting a divorce. My wife and I have only been married a little over a year, and things have just fallen to...

    I am just beginning to learn about scales and modes, and was wondering if anyone had some helpful advice on how to approach this. I've bought a lot of books, but not exactly sure where to begin other than starting with the major scale. I have bought the Guitar Fretboard Workbook which seems to...

    At my lesson today I realized that one of my main problems was not knowing where some of the notes are on the fretboard. Any one know any excercises that might help?

    Hello Jemsite. Hi. I have some basic theory knowledge under my belt. I know all the major/minor scale forms/, I know what they consist of, and how they are used. But one thing I've been interested for months are modes. I just don't understand how they work. A Dorian sounds exactly like G major...

    Just wanted to ask if anyone here in the forum has found themselves almost completely bored to death of shred guitar? Do you ever find yourself putting on your Vai, Satch, Dream Theater or other artists CD's in your players and after a few minutes just bored? The first time I felt that way was...

    Hey, Im having a tough time getting anywhere on guitar lately, which on top of school courswork is making life pretty frustrating at the moment. I've been playing for four years and the two middle years I have learnt plenty, but now everything is grinding to a halt, and im finding it hard...

    OK - years ago I used to teach guitar for a shop - can you believe it ;) I also used to teach privately... well, it drove me absolutely bonkers dealing with some really weird people who would always tell ya that after 3 months of playing... they didnt think that learning the major scale was...
