Hello there, guitar slingers!
You, finally, did it! You now know the major and/or minor scale on the guitar. You are probably fluent in the first box of the minor pentatonic scale as well. Now what? Is there anything else out there besides that? Of course, there is! There are so many modes for...
Hi guys, I am currently studying theory by myself (which can get pretty frustrating) and I was wondering about the different modes of the major scale. For instance, I read somewhere the Phrygian is minor (even though it's a mode of the major scale) but depending on the key it might become major...
This Wah is why doves cry.
Seriously though, I was searching for a Wah a couple years back and got this after Mike asked Steve Smyth for me what Wah he used on Forbidden's Omega Wave. I've tried a bunch of other Wahs, and this is by far the best for METAL. Really, you shouldn't be playing...
This will either help or hinder. Modes are tricky to explain, god knows I went through countless vids in the late 80's until one day I just went, "AHHHH!!!"
So, i'm a n00b with tube amps, and playing around with the line 6 edit, i'm not really learning or hearing any significant changes as i mess around with these features:
whats class a vs class a/b
topology (I- IV)
tri vs pent mode
And more specifically, what effect does the setting have on tone?
I have been wondering for many moons what modes of the major diatonic are associated with what emotions?
I can "feel" 1 mode as happy / complete.
I know that minor modes are supposed to be sad but that's not what I hear or "feel". (I actually tend feel happy with 6 because I love the...
I have been using this method to teach my guitar students for the past 8 years. I find that in the beginning when they are learning theory related to the guitar or bass its best to remove the circle of fifths to the equation till they can get a grasp on the basics of scales and modes.
Any of my fellow mesanns try this? I'm actually quite liking a left track of one and a right track of the other. The modern is a bit more scooped for me and the vintage is fatter so they make a nice combo.
I was talking to the guy who gave me my stack, to get his opinion on a lead tone i had dialed in.
we got to talking, and within half an hour I had figured out each mode for the Cmaj scale position (I'm in C standard, so it wasnt *actually* Cmaj), one octave :).
Now, I have partially forgotten...
