Modes theory is an important concept for music writing.
Guitarmodes has another unique simple teaching method, this time for locating and playing minor Pentatonic scales across the fretboard at the same time as playing major modes.
This is an exercise in bringing major modes and pentatonic scales together as one, as they should be taught initially.

Harmonies using Modes for 2 or 3 guitars is instantly accessible if you learn the Guitarmodes method, even for a beginner.
Play through each mode individually.
One musician plays the Ionian mode.
The second musician plays the Phrygian mode.
The third musician plays the Mixolydian mode.
Guitar modes .com.au has a unique simple formula to play the Pentatonic scale and all of it's modes diagonally across the fretboard as well as teaching how to make chords and arpeggios from the diagonal Pentatonic scale and each of the modes.
Please let us know if you have seen a pre todays date copy right method/lesson that offers this concept.
Guitarmodes is dedicated to developing teaching methods for you to navigate the guitar fretboard.
You will gain the knowledge and be able to play vertically, horizontally, diagonally forward and diagonally back across the instruments fretboard.
Guitarmodes method provides a way to play one octave of each mode in one location. This is based on the Relative approach to modes.
This can be done for each major scale. Obviously by moving the fingering to the required starting position.
The 1 3 5 7 9 11 and 3 5 7 9 11 13 are located diagonally to create major based chords such as C major 7th, Cmajor 9th etc.
The 5 7 9 11 13 1 3 are located diagonally to create all dominant 7th based chords such as C7th, C9th, C11th, C13th.
This is a small example of diagonal chord structure (chords sitting under 1 finger 1 fret similar to the open C chord formation) easily derived from the Gu
Have you been playing for a long time and wish you had learnt your modes years ago.
I was the same.
The idea came to me to figure out why I did not learn the modes. The major draw back now that I understand was:
There are 2 concepts involved when learning modes.
Guitar modes provides a very simple formula to play diagonally.
Guitar modes offers a new unique simple method for teaching guitar theory.
Our method will provide the knowledge for you to intergrate with conventional theory. You are able to access the information on our Lesson page. You may charge a Master Class Premium for this lesson.
You will have the knowledge to take a beginner through to advanced in a very short time.
Guitar modes method will guide you across the fretboard in one simple lesson, forming a pathway for undestanding to learn all scales, their modes, intervals, note location, chord structure based on scales, parallel and relative approach to modes, 2 note harmony, triads based on scales, extended chords, simplified application of Drop 2 method for chord inversion, arpeggios, choosing scales to link
Apply numbers (degrees) to the C major scale.
C, D, E, F, G, A, B, D, F, A =
1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 9, 11, 13
CMaj or C = 1 3 5
CMaj7 = 1 3 5 7
CMaj9 = 1 3 5 7 9
CMaj11 = 1 3 5 7 9 11
CMaj13 = 1 3 5 7 9 13
Cmin = 1 b3 5
Cmin7 = 1 b3 5 b7
Cmin9 = 1 b3 5 b7 9
Cmin11 = 1 b3 5 b7 9 11
Cmin13 = 1 b3 5 b7 9 11 13
C7 = 1 3 5 b7
C9 = 1 3 5 b7 9
C11 = 1 3 5 b7 9 11
C13 = 1 3 5
This concept arises when constructing chord inversions utilising the degrees (notes) of a scale.
Remember, the 1, 3, 5, 7 is the basic major chord, not the first inversion.
Take the first inversion of a chord as an example.
The second last degree 1, 3, 5, 7 when constructing a chord, is placed first.
Guitar modes method team have introduced the simple application of 4 note harmony/chord structure with chord inversions, into the Lesson page.
While all teachers suggest this to be an advanced lesson with much knowledge required before hand, you will find that learning 4 note harmony is just another basic outcome after learning the Guitarmodes method.
