Watch the Modes Intro online guitar lesson by Brad Carlton from Improv a la Mode

Modes. Some players swear by them and some consider them useless. Whatever camp you may gravitate towards, everyone agrees that players should understand modes as they apply to improvisational theory and then decide how much or how little to incorporate into their own playing.
This course will cover all of the bases and give you a solid foundation to build on and add more color and texture to your solos and rhythm work.

There's no licks or parts to learn throughout this course -- it's all about applying this approach while improvising over the various jam tracks we've prepared. Your primary reference materials are the charts provided as the PDF element in this first lesson - print these out right away for easy access during the course.

For obvious reasons, there are no Power Tab, or additional PDF elements - it's all on the videos, jams and charts.

The best way to approach this series is to first watch all of the video segments and then go back to review and then apply the theory against the jam track so that you can clearly "hear" what's going on harmonically.

Every example throughout the series is presented in the key of C and so, you'll also want to start transposing the material to every key as well as memorizing the basic construction of each mode and it's underlying chords.
