Modes - an organic approach to discovering the seven hidden moods in every key (Intermediate) Sample Lesson Sample In this 2 hour-plus lesson Bill Brown teaches you about the different modes used in modern music in a systematic and developmental way. Rather than using the typical "scale formula" approach he takes you through a true understanding of where modes come from so that you can pull from more resources in your repertoire of melodies and improv phrases. At every phase there are demonstration tracks to listen to followed by an explanation of the different effects the modes can produce. There are also several backing tracks for the student to practice with as well as exercises and drills using the learned information.
