In this lesson a figure will be given for 7 modes. Each figure will be an altered arpeggio and each will develop a slightly different skill set. The mode may only be a starting point and several of these exercises will shift to another position on the neck. (The key the exercises are in are arbitrary, just where I developed them originally) B IONIAN (short scale runs within the sweep. Use to develop the ability to eliminate pauses between sweep picking to picking through a scale)
