What is the most frequently asked question fielded by guitar teachers? Survey says... What scale do I use? There are hundreds of correct answers to that simple question. Some of those correct answers are also simple while some require a degree in higher math and rocket science to understand. Our mission as music students is to find the correct answers that click in our head and then proceed with our studies accordingly.
Ultimately though, a proficient improviser is never thinking about scales or modes when they are playing. An accomplished musician is playing by a creative intuition that is fueled by that knowledge, but certainly not driven by that knowledge. Meanwhile, what scale do we use...?
Jon Finn will not only answer that question in a simple and very illuminating way, he'll also guide your own creative intuition skills with a technique he calls Ear/Hand Coordination. It's all here in Modal Rock Soloing.
Guitar Labs innovative learning systems employ a hands-on approach where students play their way through the curriculum using learning tools such as PIP video, practice rhythm tracks, and interactive tab and notation, which allows the student to play along with the tab and notation, at any tempo, without change in pitch.
