Have you been playing the guitar for a while, but wondering how to begin soloing? Maybe you’re comfortable with chords and some single notes – but don’t know how to translate those into creating your own riffs? This is the course for you! In “Solo Through the Modes on Guitar,” I’ll take you through the first concepts needed to begin playing your own solos.
This course focuses on the mode shapes on the guitar. The modes are seven unique shapes that all fit together to create one master shape that covers the neck of the guitar. The master shape can be used as a guide for knowing which notes fit into a key – and we can solo within that shape!
We’re also able to solo within the seven individual shapes, using each one in a different context, as each one has their own “feel” or “vibe.” We’ll be covering the shapes themselves, but also how they fit together with one another, how they fit into a parent key, and the “feel” of each one.
Finally, knowing the shapes is a wonderful thing – but we’re going to learn how to use them! We’ll be covering two tools to turn our shapes into solos, called transition notes and shape building.
By the end of this course, you should have a good understanding of what notes work together, how to use shapes to build lead lines, and have a root knowledge of soloing that will set you up for success as you progress into more advanced soloing techniques. Let’s get started!
(Note, this course comes with a full book on the modes on the guitar. This book covers individual shapes, how modes relate to each other, and basic theory concepts. It is highly recommended that you download the PDF and use it in your learning).
