Hello. I've been at this guitar thing for about 3 years now and I've been trying to get in touch with modes/scales, so I've learned all the modes and all but I can't seem to learn to use them properly and I think my problem is playing the modes straight out of the pattern instead of using them. I think my problem is based on not emphasazing the right notes if I just play stuff right out of the pattern.. Does anybody have any tips?
Listen to the chords being played, then play notes that don't suck.

Bitches be Crazy.

do exercises that that run from one pattern to another and try to come up with licks that use different modes. and always land on a root note or bend a note to that pitch that way you wont play "a note that sucks"

Try some melodic control Marty Friedman style.

Awesome video. Friedman is amazing.
