On Modes & Harmonies

One minor little update from the recording "studio." I happened to pick up an old DVD instructional video of one of my favorite guitarists and created my own drill out of inspiration from it. This one is a bit less song-like and a lot more "drill with a drum machine in the background"-like.

This is the initial version of it, with two little scale runs harmonized. The ascending and descending runs are done in different positions to give a bit of contrast to the ears, while also adding some familiarity with the fretboard. Don't worry ... it'll get better over time. Maybe.

Audio clip: Adobe Flash Player (version 9 or above) is required to play this audio clip. Download the latest version here. You also need to have JavaScript enabled in your browser.

Tab below for the full drill. Only the first two bars were used in this version, for now. Eventually, it'll get expanded out to all modes.

Repeat each bar however many times you feel necessary ....
