Took these off the net but are they really in the keys as seen here...
I could be wrong but the root note is the key for the scale. These look like variations of E, E, D, and E to me.They look in key but it’s just an odd way of showing you the notes laid out . Maybe that’s how he visualized it himself so he did that . Weird presentation but this does happen
They are not showing a key . It’s just notes laid out then they tell you the key . It literally is saying here’s the batch of notes he wants used and how he sees the key . All of the these could be other modes and keys . It’s really just here’s how he sees it in his mindI could be wrong but the root note is the key for the scale. These look like variations of E, E, D, a d E again to me.
Memorize the modes of music one key first . G major is also E minor so I would that key first . After you learn all 7 modes in that key then you will realize that all 7 modes share the same notes . So thise notes making G major all can be done ne of the those 7 keys . It all depends what the root of the main riff is behind your jamming . Once you have all 7 memorized it’s easy to explain and see . But leerning the modes really good on one key first is what makes it click .As examples of licks then let it fly. Love all the patterns. If it needed to be posted I knew it was here.
Afa the keys, I would like someone to explain in a very simple way how they are in the keys other than how see them one by one. I know about modes and the scale can be extended lower or higher but the root of where it begins determins the key as I understand it.
A cool simple pattern is:
4-5-7 on the low E
then move up a fret and up a string and instead of your middle finger use the ring finger (along with index and pinky), so
5-7-8 on the A string
then up a fret and up a string and then switch back to your middle finger along with index and pinky so
6-7-9 on the D string
and so on; always up a fret and up a string, switch the 'inner' finger. And of course remember to account for the dumb B string so its up 2 frets (or down 2 frets if you're going down).
Play with that and then listen to the run here:
