Week 35. Modes And Notes

Hey guitar chefs!

This week I did a lot of note pronunciation. All keys (major and minor), all modes (for minor keys I would just start from aeolian instead of ionian). Each day 3-4 keys. Not much fun but it should be useful in the future.

At this point I’m more of a shapes guy, all improvs are going with memorizing and visualizing shapes on the fretboard, not with keeping the notes I play in mind. I’m sure that at some point the notes will be needed to know. But since now I don’t have any useful application on that I’ll stop that routine for time being until I do.

I reconsidered and decided not to skip fingerpicking modules, so the next week my practice will be formed around Module 31 routines.

That’s it for today, see you next week. Take care!

The goals for this week were:

  • [Done] Memorize the Circle of Fifths
  • [Done] Play the modes pronouncing the notes out loud
  • Practice modes with the Random Scale Machine
  • [Done] Improvise daily

My goals for the next week:

  • Implement Module 31 routines
  • Improvise daily
