Ask Robbie Calvo Anything (About Modes)

You're probably already familiar with TrueFire Educator Robbie Calvo, author of the popular courses Sweet Notes, RhythmCraft, SoloCraft, The Rhythm Architect, and 50 R&B Licks, but just in case you've been living under a proverbial rock, here's a little bit about this master of smooth & groovy guitar.

Robbie studied the art of decorative painting and design at the Hastings College of Arts and Technology receiving distinctions from the City & Guilds of London, England. He also graduated from the Guitar Institute of Technology in Los Angeles. Robbie has taugh guitar at the London Musicians Institute and in 1995 he placed second in the "Guitarist of the Year" finals at London"s Wembley Arena and also took first place in the Unisong international songwriting competition with his instrumental piece "Dark Horses". Robbie relocated to Nashville, TN in 1998, to pursue his songwriting career, writing and pitching songs by day from his 16th Avenue publishing office and playing live at the writers rounds by night.

Robbie is in the TrueFire Studio this week shooting his next course, which will cover modes (more info to come), so we wanted to open up a Fireside Chat so that you could ask him anything and everything (about modes). Dig in and check back soon for Robbie's responses!
