The modes are probably the most confusing of all music theories. I believe it’s because of they way they are often described. However the modes are also one of the most important part of the guitar players scaler education. When learning the modes one should be focusing on understanding where these scales came from and begin to memorize the shapes of each individual scale that is covered here. Spend as much time as you can playing these scales. This section maps out all the mode scales across the entire neck of the guitar.
The importance of scales is for soloing and melody writing. The importance of the modes is “mapping out moods”. What follows is an introduction to these scales and moods.
