In this tutorial we check John Mayer’s most used foundations for his guitar solos: Dorian and Aeolian modes. In addition to that I’ll add a “bonus” too, the Phrygian mode!
This is a summary of 3 previous lessons on transforming the minor pentatonic scale into one of 3 minor modes: Dorian, Aeolian, and Phrygian. Why do we start from the pentatonic scale? Simply because that is where most guitarists start their journey of improvisation on the guitar. Learning to manipulate the basic pentatonic scale and change it into one of the minor modes is a very powerful skill and means you’ll be able to see all those minor pentatonic licks within those modes.
These lessons are part of a series called: Modes and Major Scale Fingerings: https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLebJQkKUkd6p6luqHjfq9AGMPe3XaRgat
