This Lesson is a follow up and will focus on the 7 modes of harmonic minor. 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) ADD PULL-OFFS WHERE YOU SEE FIT, TOO MESSY FOR ME TO ADD INTO THE TAB. E IONIAN b3, b6 (Starts as a straight minor sweep and reveals its identity in the last bit by adding in the #7. Develop staggered upward sweeping motion)

Each exercise will develop a different technical ability and also can be utilized as transitional pieces from one position to another smoothly. Feel free to email me to talk guitar josh@thejohnsonage.com www.thejohnsonage.com Youtube Facebook
