Topic: Theory

Today we're going to use just a handful of notes to understand modes. We're going to explore the Major 9th, Major 3rd, and Minor 7th scales degrees to better understand E Mixolydian! Let's begin, AJ

Mixolydian Ear Training - Tensions
Al Joseph
Level: Intermediate
Topic: Theory
Style: Rock
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...

Mixolydian Ear Training - Major 3rds Phrase
Al Joseph
Level: Intermediate
Topic: Theory
Style: Rock
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...

Mixolydian Ear Training - Major 9ths Phrase
Al Joseph
Level: Intermediate
Topic: Theory
Style: Rock
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...

Mixolydian Ear Training - Minor 7ths Phrase
Al Joseph
Level: Intermediate
Topic: Theory
Style: Rock
The minor 7th likes to resolve up to the root. Once again you can prolong your phrase and move through the different chord tones before ending the phrase properly.  Notice at this point a scale acts just like that. It's balanced perfectly. The farther out say 9th or 6th degree, the weaker the movement and most times feels the need to hit say the 3rd or...

Mixolydian Ear Training - Wrap Up

Level: Intermediate
Topic: Theory

Notice at this point a scale acts just like that. It's balanced perfectly. The farther out say 9th or 6th degree, the weaker the movement and most times feels the need to hit say the 3rd or 5th before resolving down or up to the root. Chors tones always resolve smoothly to the root. But notes that make a mode uniques are usually harder to tell if not mixed i...
Guitar Lessons - Intervallic Licks Round II - Lick1
Intervallic Licks Round II - Lick1
Al Joseph
Level: Intermediate
Topic: Theory
Style: Rock
Here's another round of licks I'm visualizing using shapes as well as using intervallic pivot points (by ear) to gauge my position when phrasing my lines. Lick #1 is based on another 7th arpeggio shape. This like any other arpeggio can be transposed to a different shape thus chord quality as you move it through the scale diatonically. So we have Gmaj7 - F#...

Intervallic Licks Round II - Lick2
Al Joseph
Level: Intermediate
Topic: Theory
Style: Rock
Lick #2 is based on another one of the same shapes as in the first video, only being tapped this time. We start with Gmaj7 then fall down to A7. The A7 arpeggio starts on the b7 degree. Analyze this shape and try it diatonically through the scale or key you are in. We are in the key in Emin. GO!

Guitar Lessons - Dominant Lines - INTRO
Dominant Lines - INTRO
Al Joseph
Level: Intermediate
Topic: Technique
Style: Rock
Welcome to the tutorial! The dominant quality is based on the 5th scale degree of the major scale. This is the home of the Mixolydian sound. Throughout recent history this tonality has developed into various forms, but today we're just going to focus on Mixolydian, Phrygian Dominant, and the Blues Scale. We're in the key of Bb7(b9) or Phrygian dominant. O...
