Guitar Modal Scales

Hi lynne,

I'm Badis. What complexes me is whether in a given song, the guitarist sticks to one mode in a major scale and lands on that root note throughout his chord progression?

I give u an example to clarify my question: let's suppose we are playing phrygian mode on G progression, must we pick sharp G and sharp C and sharp D in 1.4.5 progression to attract attention and create nice solo? Do we stick to same degree in the three chords? thanks for patience. I appreciate what ever u comment.


Hi, Badis--

I am somewhat confused by your question. I think that it would be good for you to acquire a general knowledge of modal scales before trying to apply them to your playing.

You can get the help you need at:

There you will find information about all of the modes and you will also be able to download free printable tabs for each mode in all 12 keys.

Best Wishes,
