Modal Techniques: Intermediate


Most players say that modes and technique are two areas that they would like to help take their playing to the next level. Well now you can! Brian Maillard teaches you how to use the modes creatively while supercharging your chops in the process!

In this Intermediate volume we'll be focussing on the Mixolydian mode! Along with learning the mixolydian mode all over the neck (with diagrams too!) we'll be taking the mode through all sorts of paces such as legato exercises. These will help you practise and develop your technique at a slightly higher level than the beginner volume, and we're sure you'll find some interesting and challenging ideas too! We'll also be working on adding chromatic passing tones, and different pentatonic combinations! To round this volume off Brian has 10 very creative and challenging intermediate licks for you to learn and a full solo to bring everything together.

This volume is the intermediate part of the full 'Modal Techniques Masterclass: Box set' course. Which is desgined to take you step by step through from the beginner levels of modal soloing to the advanced! So please check out the complete box set by clicking the image below.

Here's what we said about the complete edition: 'Even if you're a complete modal novice, you've got a firm grip on the modes, or you're already a modal master looking for new ways to spice up your soloing and supercharge your technique, we've got something here for everyone. It's going to be a challenge, but you're going to learn a lot along the way! This course will develop your theory and technical skills in a creative and enjoyable manner. We'll see you on the other side!'

As ever, we have included everything you need to practise and perfect the material in this package. There are video and audio tracks for you to watch/listen and study, accurately transcribed TAB/notation for you to analyse and master, and backing tracks for everything!
