Sam Russell: Two shortcuts for using modes over major and minor chords, Part 1




Two shortcuts for using modes over major and minor chords, Part 1


In todays lesson we are going to look at some neat shortcuts we can use to incorporate moving between modes into our playing, in a very easy to use way. We’ll look at an example with a major chord and in part 2, we will look at playing over a minor chord. We will go over the theory behind working this out, so you can see short cuts, which will allow you to transpose your phrases through modes very, very easily.


Example 1: Ionian & Lydian
So let’s say we are playing in the key of G major, and playing over a G5 power chord. We are going to use G Ionian:


Macintosh HD:Users:Sam:Documents:Articles:Shortcuts for moving phrases through modes:figure 1.png
Figure 1


And we are playing the following phrase (nice and simple so you can understand the principle for this technique):


e|-8-7-5---7-5-----------------------
B|-------8-----8-7-5-----------------
G|-----------------------------------
D|-----------------------------------
A|-----------------------------------
E|-----------------------------------


Sounds cool. Now, rather than play up and down our Ionian mode, we want to switch to the Lydian to give the solo some spice. Now, our Lydian in the key of G looks like this:


Macintosh HD:Users:Sam:Documents:Articles:Shortcuts for moving phrases through modes:figure 2.png
Figure 2


Now, what we want to do is find the Ionian position of the Lydian mode. Read this sentence 5 times so you understand it.


So, the Ionian position of the Lydian mode is as follows:
Macintosh HD:Users:Sam:Documents:Articles:Shortcuts for moving phrases through modes:figure 3.png
Figure 3
The Lydian in G is on the left and the Ionian position of the Lydian mode is on the right.


So we will play our original phrase in the Ionian position of the Lydian mode:


e|--15-14-12----14-12----------------
B|-----------15-------15-14-12-------
G|-----------------------------------
D|-----------------------------------
A|-----------------------------------
E|-----------------------------------


Why goto the bother of working these positions out, rather than simply using the Lydian shape in the first place?
There are two reasons for this:
  1. The increase in pitch from moving up the neck sounds cool.
  2. This way we can play exactly the same phrase, we just slide it up the neck - so it’s super easy to work out.


So there you have it - to turn your Ionian phrase into a Lydian phrase, just play it 7 frets higher - easy! I like the sound of playing one phrase, then the other, like this:
Guitar 1
e|-8-7-5---7-5----------15-14-12----14-12-----------
B|-------8-----8-7-5-------------15-------15-14-12--
G|--------------------------------------------------
D|--------------------------------------------------
A|--------------------------------------------------
E|--------------------------------------------------


Guitar 2
e|---------------------------------------------------
B|---------------------------------------------------
G|---------------------------------------------------
D|-5-------------------------------------------------
A|-5-------------------------------------------------
E|-3-------------------------------------------------


So there you have it - a very easy technique to incorporate moving between modes into your playing! In part 2, we will look at playing over minor chords.

News: Gibson Brands Acquires HarmonyCentral.com



Gibson Brands Acquires HarmonyCentral.com

Emphasis on site neutrality and extensive community involvement will continue



NASHVILLE, TN-April 10, 2015

Gibson Brands, the fastest-growing company in music and sound, has acquired HarmonyCentral.com, the premier web site for all types and levels of musicians. According to Gibson CEO and Chairman Henry Juszkiewicz, “The industry needs a neutral, entertaining, informative site where musicians can exchange opinions and knowledge, ask questions, get answers, be controversial, and have a great experience. Harmony Central will not be a ‘Gibson site’; we already have that. Think of it as Gibson providing a place to throw a party, and everyone—musicians, the industry, competitors, educators, anyone involved in music and sound—is invited and welcome.”

Harmony Central has operated continuously since 1995. In 2004 it was purchased by Musician’s Friend, and in 2010, folded into Guitar Center. Changes in direction at Guitar Center opened up the possibility for an acquisition of Harmony Central.

The current editorial team of Dendy Jarrett, Phil O’Keefe, and Chris Loeffler will remain onboard and Gibson’s Craig Anderton, who was at HC’s helm during its period of greatest success, will serve as Editorial Director. According to Anderton, “This is a dream come true for all of us who love Harmony Central. We have a lot of work ahead of us, and it will take time for Harmony Central to reach its full potential. But having seen the environment Gibson has provided for recent acquisitions like TASCAM, Cakewalk, Neat Microphones, and Philips, we have no doubt Harmony Central will enjoy the same kind of rejuvenation. With Gibson’s support, Harmony Central will be able to create new ways to both inform and entertain. Stay tuned.”
