Watch the 10 Scales & Modes You Must Know! online guitar lesson by Joe Robinson from 10 Scales & Modes You MUST Know
The first step to being able to improvise over different chord progressions is having the essential vocabulary of scales and modes at your command. Without getting too bogged down in theory, in this course I will show you the 10 most useful scales and modes. I'll explain why they work over certain progressions, we'll discuss their tonal characteristics, and I'll demonstrate their application in an improvisational etude. Learning these 10 scales and modes will enable you to improvise over virtually any pop, rock, blues or even jazz chord progression. The focus in this course is on learning the scales, not licks - so while I will give you a lot of improvisational examples along the way, I really only want you to focus on the scales and exercises. This will help you to internalize these scales and use your own voice in creating licks and lines of your own for your solos and improvisation. Let's go ahead and dig in.
