This session is one of our Music Corner Drop-in series with Jamie McCredie. Generally we run them weekly each Tuesday at 7.30pm and delve into a broad range of subjects relating to technique, theory, know-how, practice or something topical in the guitar world.

This session explains what modes are and how you can use them.



Modes are a bit of mystery to most of us. They come with intimidating Greek names such as Ionian, Dorian, Phrygian, etc.

Modes is a massive subject. They have something to with parent scales but what exactly are they and how can you use them? Can they help when improvising?

A major scale can spawn seven modes?

Music Corners in general

These weekly one hour sessions are designed to give us the tools to self-improve and widen our  knowledge in the following general areas: rhythm, reading music, improvising, understanding music theory, getting good tone, how to play a solo, how to play with a group, how to develop your ear, learning the rules of music through transcribing the history of a genre. Our tutor, Jamie McCredie, will share key things he has learned over years that have helped to make him the professional guitarist and musician he is today.

Relevant materials will be available for each session.

Session suitability
This lesson is most suitable for intermediate players with a tad of music theory/knowledge but players of all standards will register some lightbulb moments and pick up some great ideas and approaches.
