The key here is E Major Lydian. E - F# - G# - A# - B - C# - D# - E. Inversions come into play when you want to replace the root with another note within the chord. So say we have the triad E Major4. Root position would be E - A# - B. 1st inversion would be A# - B - E. 2nd inversion would be B - E - A#.

When all is said and done...use your ear. Visualizing the fretboard is an eye and ear endeavour. So when it comes to comping in a real life setting, it should be understood that playing off of the soloist and other musicians is the key to standing out as a great rhythm guitar player. I know this concept isn't used with rock so much but it should, and I imple...

Understand that for every mode you explore there are chord tones and other intervals that make that mode sound the way it does. All other tones are used as "passing tones". Passing tones are used to embelish the intervals that color particular modes. Pay close attention to the video and I'll explain how each scale degree is used in what I call "Tension and...

The major 3rd is a chord tone and can be used by itself. Keep in mind that it needs to reseolve to the tinic or root note by the end of any given phrase. You'll also notice that you can embelish the major 3rd by bending it up to the 4th scale degree and back down or side stepping from the 4th as well. I'll show you how in the video...

The 9th scale degree is actually the "2nd" scale degree yet and octave up past the 8th(octave) scale degree making it a 9th from the root. Notice how the 9th too likes to resolve to the tonic or root note. You can prolong this action by moving up to the 3rd scale degree or any other chord tone before resolving your phrase. Take a look at how I do that here...
