Ultimate hack for learning and *USING* the modes...

Published March 9, 2017 in Improvisation


Are you confused with what the modes are… or, how you can actually use them in a real musical setting?!

I was for a LONG time until I found the exercise I’m going to show you in the this lesson.

I’ve also got a VERY special guest with me in the new lesson… one of my favourite all time bass players. Ever. I’d go as far to say he’s one of the most musical and lyrical soloists on the bass I’ve ever heard.

Anyway, let’s do this…

As always, I’d love to hear about you’re experiences too - my feeling is that although many players know what the modes are - most struggle with applying them in a practical way to their bass lines, grooves, fills and solo lines. But… lemme know what you’re experiences are under the video in the comments!

See you in the shed,

Scott :)

PS. We’ve got a new feature here at ScottsBassLessons… Introducing the SBL Student Spotlight series.

We decided it’d be cool to share some of our student’s stories to highlight the awesome things some of our students are doing. This week we published our first one with the always grooving Maddie Jay.

Have your say
