Connecting Scales Across the Fretboard

In this course we start to view the fretboard as a complete whole using the CAGED system while at the same time acquiring a functional understanding of the modes and some other commonly used scale sounds. Each lesson focuses on one specific scale sound and examines what makes it what it is.

Modes are simply scale sounds but they are often misunderstood and because of this are under utilized. This course unravels that confusion and then takes a close look at modes as individual sounds and compares their similarities and differences from a musical perspective. Guitaristically modes are examined in all regions of the fretboard in order to gain a further grasp on the mechanics of the fretboard.

Other important scale sounds are visited as well that will further increase your repertoire of sounds and ready you for your own improv and writing in a number of different styles.
