What Is The Modal Mayhem Series? 
Modal Mayhem provides the most comprehensive modal pedagogy in existence. It’s designed to unlock the true power of the seven modes in your playing. This is accomplished with my 3 keys. 
1. Scales 
2. Chords
3. Licks
We’ll use the 3 note per string scale system for maximum speed and efficiency. For chords, I’ve devised 2 and 3 chord progressions that encapsulate the sound of each mode. This is the most important part. You won’t find these chord formulas anywhere else. Finally, I’ve constructed shred licks for each mode, targeting their modal tendency tones. We’ll execute these licks using sweep picking, alternate picking, legato and finger tapping. 
What does this course mean for me?
Internalize the material in this course and I guarantee you’ll turn into an epic modal bad ass! The clarity and insight provided in this course will put you on the fast track to modal mastery. Finally, you’ll gain a powerful command of the 7 Diatonic Modes. It means you’ll be able to draw on the vast emotional reserves of each mode at a moments notice. While improvising, jamming with others, or impressing the babes! 
Bonus Features
For the more advanced student of music theory, I’ve provided two bonus features. 
1. Harmonizing
2. Ultimate Chord Workout
We’ll harmonize twinkle twinkle little star using each mode. This provides context and real life application for the unique modal character of each mode. The Ultimate Chord Workout, is a fretboard chord inversion exercise. Utilizing every set of strings and 30 plus chord voicings across the neck. 
Course Materials 
Inside the course materials you’ll find the following tabs and mp3’s for each mode. 
1. 3 Note Per String Scales
2. Primary Chords
3. Licks
4. Twinkle Twinkle Harmonizations 
5. Ultimate Chord Workouts
