Tackling Major/Minor Modes - Introduction

Today, I've written 3 lines for you in Eminor/Gmajor. I don't play or think in terms of "Aeolian" or minor mode that much actually. I tend to hear the relative major mode.

For instance, in this case we are in Eminor. I will hear the Eminor pentatonic clearly but when it comes to expanding my vocabulary I tend to listen for major triadic ideas. In other words, try to hear these licks in any context you like!

To help your learning foundation, please review my Root Connection Study tutorial.

Good luck,
