Morten Faerestrand: Locrian - the Jazziest of guitar scales

Morten Faerestrand:
If there's one subject students keep asking me about, when it comes to the dry, "boring" stuff, it's melodic minor. (Slash the altered scale. Slash the Mixo #4 scale. Etc. Dear child has many names)

And I totally get that! Getting control over this sound, and all the fingerings and inversions of it, is more foreign than starting to be free around the neck with the regular modes, for a number of reasons.

Let's not get into why, it's not important. Let's focus on solutions, not problems.

There is a video course that will teach you all the variations of melodic minor. The simple drills in the course will ease the sounds into you ear, while simultaneously connecting your ear with your fingers.

It is super simple, and easy to follow, and even without you thinking too much, or straining yourself, you'll be able to play freely across the neck outputting the different tonalities from melodic minor.

Most important scales:

Melodic Minor
Altered / Super Locrian
Mixolydian #4
Locrian Natural 9

(We cover all 7 inversions, but these 4 are the most important ones, and the foundation that you can relate the remaining three towards)

YOU get to check out this course for free!

If you haven't guessed it yet, I made this course.. ;-)

The entire course is of course available in the members-only section of, but since I bet you want to have complete control over melodic minor and all it's siblings immediately, one part of the course is available for free.

Stephen Stills,Kenny Wayne Shepherd: The Rides

The Rides (L-R) - Stephen Stills (guitar, vocals), Barry Goldberg (keyboards),Kenny Wayne Shepherd (guitar, vocals)
“THE RIDES” - the new all-star blues rock supergroup featuring guitarist Stephen Stills (Buffalo Springfield, CSN, CSN&Y), guitarist Kenny Wayne Shepherd and keyboardist Barry Goldberg (Electric Flag) release their debut album “Can’t Get Enough”on CD, digitial download, and vinyl in the UK on Monday 26th August via Provogue Records.  

Produced by Jerry Harrison (Talking Heads), the generation-spanning trio has co-written originals and recorded covers of classics by Muddy WatersElmore JamesNeil Young and Iggy and the Stooges. "Can’t Get Enough" was inspired by - and is an homage to - the now classic 1968 album Super Session, which featured Stills on guitar on one side, and the late Mike Bloomfield on the other (Bloomfield had founded Electric Flag with Goldberg, who also played on Super Session, as did Blood, Sweat & Tears keyboardist Al Kooper).

Described by Stills as "the blues band of my dreams", the project began with Stills and Goldberg writing together at their mutual manager Elliot Roberts’ recommendation. "It was like finding a long lost soul brother" says Goldberg (who hadn’t met Stills before, their shared 1968 credit notwithstanding). "We connected on so many things, started jamming, and soon had begun writing our first song."

When Kenny Wayne Shepherd arrived, The Rides’ three-way chemistry immediately clicked. "The Rides are a perfect mix of generations, where three musicians who love and play the blues collide and create music that goes beyond all our other individual life experiences and career achievement," says 35-year-old, Shepherd, who’s had six #1 Blues albums. "Stephen and I have rock backgrounds as well, but the blues is the fabric that holds this all together.

That exhilarating creative sorcery blasts through ten tracks, four of them Stills, Shepherd, Goldberg co-writes, including the album-opening barnburner "Roadhouse" - about the life of an itinerant bluesman - the melodic, CSN-esque "Don’t Want Lies,"and the title track, a groove soaked, guitar-heavy anthem with a soul-baring lead vocal by Stills. Other highlights include a Crazy Horse-calibre interpretation of "Rockin’ in the Free World". "Everyone gets off on this one," says Goldberg, "it’s just a ton of electricity on this Neil Young classic."

The Rides embark on a world tour beginning in September, with UK November dates to be confirmed in the coming weeks. more

Mike Portnoy, Mike Orlando: Portnoy quits Adrenaline Mob

Mike Portnoy has released the following statement:

"It saddens me to announce that the four upcoming shows in Latin America this month supporting HALESTORM will be my last with ADRENALINE MOB.

"Unfortunately, I have scheduling conflicts that prevent me from being able to fully commit to the band's future activities at the moment.

"As I cannot be in two places at the same time, I don't want to hold them back and have to wait for my schedule to re-open up to resume activity.

"I'm very proud of what we started together and the music we made over the past two years and I wish the guys all the best in the future."
