Watch the 30 Melodic Modal Rock Licks online guitar lesson by Jon Finn from 30 Melodic Modal Rock Licks You MUST Know

Hi, I'm Jon Finn. Welcome to 30 Melodic Modal Rock Licks You MUST Know!

Don't let the word "modal" in the title fool you. While all 30 of these licks were composed using a modal approach, they're all real versatile, very melodic licks, which can be played over virtually any modern rock or pop groove right out of the box.

At the same time, as you work through the collection, you'll acquire a higher understanding for how the modes work and learn how to target the tones that give each mode its characteristic sound.

I'll perform each lick for you, describe in detail how to play each one, as well as discuss the underlying harmonic approach. I've organized the course into six sections, each containing 5 licks constructed from a particular mode in a variety of keys. Along with each of the licks, you'll have standard notation, tablature, and all the backing tracks to work with as well.You may find that all of the lessons and breakdowns are taught at a fairly fast pace. This is done to maintain forward motion. Since everyone learns a little differently, I find it best to just put the information out there and allow folks to ask questions. With Truefire's proprietary vido player, you can rewind, slow down, and loop sectons of each clip for a closer look. Also, careful attention was place on camera angles to allow you the best possible view. Don't be afraid to spend time zooming in onsections of the lesson for a closer look. This course is desgned so that you can do that easily. Ready? Grab your guitar, and let's get started.
