(PRWEB) August 22, 2014
Claude demonstrates this easy lead guitar lick based out of the major scale as follows; 11th fret of the 2nd string with 2nd finger to the 13th fret with 4th finger to the 10th fret of the first string with first finger to the 11th fret with 2nd finger to the 13th fret with 4th finger and then descends back down to the first note, this sequence is from the Dorian mode. Johnson continues by demonstrating how you can easily shift down one position and be in the Ionian mode and expand your playing area and still remain on just the first two strings. Claude continues this easy lead guitar lesson by playing variations of this cool guitar lick. Guitar TABs are available or this easy guitar lesson at GuitarControl.com.
The major scale, aka the Ionian Mode, is a seven tone diatonic scale that is widely used in western music. The eighth duplicates the first at double its frequency so that it is called a higher octave of the same note, which its name is derived from Latin "octavus", the eighth.
Dorian is the second of the seven major modes. The Dorian Mode is composed by playing the major scale and flattening the third and seventh notes by one half steps, or simple sharpen the sixth note of the natural minor scale or Aeolian Mode. The name Dorian comes from the Greek referring to the Dorian Greeks. Since the Dorian Mode is made up from the major scale with a lowered 3rd and 7th (minor 3rd & 7th), it can be played over minor, minor 7th, and minor 9th chords and is compatible with many major chord progressions and keys.
