Watch the Solo Performance online guitar lesson by Robbie Calvo from 50 Modal Licks You MUST Know

In this solo performance I wanted to demonstrate how you can string some of the licks together over the C Lydian progression and also show you some new Ideas as well. So, this course is probably more like a 57 Modal licks You Must Know!

No point trying to describe every aspect of the solo but some main things to remember are that there are some very technically challenging sections to this piece. The intervallic lines are pretty 'hairy' on their own but couple that with the transitions to the Major 7th arpeggio runs, the pedal tones and the fast scale based phrases, you'll have your work cut out to articulate each phrase without coming unwound. Good Luck!

I hope this is a powerful demonstration for you of the Lydian mode. As always the very best thing you can start to do is craft your own licks and solo's it's not as easy as it may sometimes look you know that but nothing comes without some effort.Dig in deep and pull out the inner musician that you know is in there!
