In this lesson we will continue our look at the seven modes by playing them all starting in C. You will be able to hear the melodic differences between modes and learn about the characteristic note of each mode.
In this lesson we will take an in depth look at the Pentatonic Minor scale. This is a fun scale to improvise with and forms the basis for much of rock, pop and soul music. I'll show you the easy to remember "box pattern" that is useful for playing fast licks.
In this lesson we discuss basic chords and arpeggios. Chords discussed include the 4 basic triads (major, minor, diminished, and augmented) as well as the three fundamental 7th chords. These consist of Major 7, Minor 7, and Dominant 7.
In this lesson we learn how the 7th chords relate to the modes and apply it to an exercise that covers the entire neck of the bass. Each mode has a corresponding 7th chord associated with it. The exercise is built by playing the arpeggio for each mode ascending up the neck.
