Watch the Diatonic Mode online guitar lesson by Stu Hamm from Stu Hamm U: Fretboard Fitness

Here comes the bread and butter kiddies. This exercise is what everything that I have been attempting to show you about the modes and scales, have been leading up to. This puts all of the modes together to let you see how they operate within the key of G and on your fretboard. This is the foundation of my warm-up routine and the basis for the patterns to follow. As you play this, try to visualize the names of each note that you play and how they relate to the particular mode that you are playing.
