    Hey all, Just a request for assistance in settling a minor argument/ discussion regards to modes. I have been recently trying to acquaint myself with modes and learning scale patterns for them. A friend of mine and I got into discussing them and when I bring up examples he completely confuses...

    Hey guys. I'm an old 51 year old guy that has been playing forever. I can almost play any song within reason that I hear that I want to figure out, but I don't always know what I'm playing. LOL. I mean, I know what key it's in and I can of course tell what the tempo is, etc, and I know the...

    I am in no way affiliated with this site; I just thought it was awesome and it helped me out in my playing so I wanted to post it up. Just about any chord or scale/mode you could want is a click away and it's free to use no signing up for anything and no strings attached. It says I can't post...

    Not sure how I found this but anyone who is interested in soloing over any or all of the 7 major modes (in the key of A) there is a cool backing track album on Itunes (and maybe other places too, I don't know). The artist is Jon Hall. You can look him up by his name. Thank me later.

    Frank Gambale - Modes No More Mystery PAL DVD. This was originally recorded back in the 80's or 90's but still remains a very useful reference for studying the applied modes for the guitar. As new condition, includes original booklet. This is a PAL disc so will work in the UK and Europe...

    Could anyone tell me what mode the second part of the solo on Psycho Monkey from Crystal Planet is in? The bit after the C# phrygian. I've got to tab the solo out for a lesson I'm giving and this would help a lot.

    Is a (insert mode) dominant the same as that mode in the dominant key? Eg: F Phrygian (root F) Phrygian dominant = C (Phrygian root C) What are the differences in terms of b2 b3 etc?
