Guitar Control has many lessons that can aid a guitar student on the road to a better understanding of their instrument and its language.

Cameron Rasmussen is the instructor in this video and shows the viewer how to play the modes. A popular instructor at Guitar Control, Cameron is highly effective at delivering complex ideas in a way that is easily followed. He explains that a mode is a scale that sits within another scale. Simply with a different starting and ending note, while still using the same notes of the original scale.

Each mode has its own name and sound, and Cameron plays through each one. Viewers can play along as well. The guitar tabs are linked to in the description of the video. He first plays through the melodic minor, then shows how to play the Dorian flat 2, lydian augmented, lydian dominant, mixolydian flat 6, locrian sharp 2, and altered modes.

These modes are commonly used in classical and jazz music. Cameron demonstrates both uses and gives some insight into how versatile these modes can be.

These modes can be used to improvise over specific chords. Cameron improvises a few guitar licks as examples of chord and mode combinations and gives the viewer a glimpse into the bigger picture: how sounds relate to one another on the guitar. The viewer will be able to hear the relationship between chord and mode.

The folks at Guitar Control encourage the viewer to experiment with these modes and come up with their own ideas. It surely is the best way for a guitar player to develop his or her own unique style.

Guitar Control has many lessons that can aid a guitar student on the road to a better understanding of their instrument and its language. They offer a comprehensive collection of video guitar tutorials and training videos, ranging from Blues and Rock, to Jazz.
