Watch the The Roadmap: Phrygian online guitar lesson by Robbie Calvo from Power Play: Minor

I've created another backing track that cycles through 4 key changes, 4 times. The progression created is a Phrygian progression. This means the progression has a tonal center of the III minor chord in a major key and will resolve nicely to the III chord also.

Let’s take a look at the progression and how to play this cool 2 bar minor vamp.

The 4 keys we’ll be playing our Phrygian progression in are as follows, in order are A Phrygian (F major scale) - B Phrygian (G major scale) - C Phrygian (Ab major scale) - D Phrygian (Bb major scale).

If you need to have reference of scale shapes for each of these keys and modes I’ve provided those for you, and I’ve written them in order for you one position per page. I’m so good to you. :-)

Please don’t become reliant on those scale diagrams though, use them only if you are just starting to learn these shapes and really need them for reference.
