Unlock the secrets to turn scales and modes into amazing solos! Designed for all skill levels by renowned guitarist John McCarthy, this program starts with learning major scale theory and how to play the major scale in every key. Easily find the relative minor key for each major scale and create master charts that are the source of leads, chord progressions and songs. John teaches all seven modes derived from the major scales and their distinct sound, which you will apply while playing over full band backing tracks. Learn passing tone theory, chordal soloing, how to create a chord scale and chord progression for each mode plus the extended positions of the seven note scale across the neck. This program cracks the code that will intensify your guitar playing!
On the DVD John teaches and demonstrates each playing example through easy-to-follow close-up views of each hand. He slowly breaks down all the lessons so you can easily follow along to get the hand positions correct. The included video also allows you to hear how the examples are supposed to sound and how John applies them in a musical sense.
