Course Description

Where DO scales come from?

A good question! More importantly, what’s the point of practicing them so much? Easy. It would take decades to build technical proficiency without them. Furthermore, knowing how to construct chords and arpeggios in a specific key would be just shy of impossible.

Scales provide us with the technical and theoretical know-how to make our ideas musically tangible and are a significant part of the musical language, cut and dry.

You’re probably here because you want to make yourself a more proficient guitarist and knowledgeable musician. So, before we get into the creative aspect of scale use, it makes a whole lot of sense to know what you’re playing, while you’re playing.

In this course, you'll learn, practice and be quizzed on the 7 modes of the major scale, in many positions and keys on the fingerboard. The lectures allow you to learn how the scales are constructed and how you can apply them to your own compositions and improvisation.

There is over an hour of video lectures in this course that you can access over and over again. This information would take weeks, if not months, to consume and memorize in private lessons. Learning and Applying Modes to the Guitar can be used a learning supplement to your private lessons but it's intended for people who are teaching themselves the guitar.

Who this course is for:

  • This course in intended for beginning and intermediate guitarists who want to broaden their palette for improvising, to improve their technique, and to broaden their understanding of chord/scale relationships.
  • Advanced technicians who lack a music theory foundation who want to make sense of what they are playing.

Good day, buenos dias, bonjour.. My name is Grégoire and I have been performing and teaching composition, technique, theory, improvising and ear training for just about three decades both privately and at institutions of higher learning like UNLV, UCONN, Waynflete, and Pomfret School.

My ambition as an educator is simple and to the point; to provide guitar students with an opportunity to learn music as a language and the skills necessary to be proficient technicians and composers.

I hope you enjoy the ride!
