How I Memorize the Seven Major Modes in 12 Keys
I know about 26 type of Modes - I memorize about 15 of them ( Seven Major Modes created by the C Major Scale - Ionian - Dorian - Phrygian - Lydian - Mixolydian - Aeolian - Locrian.) I know them very well in 12 keys. I also know some of the not very popular type such as the Jazz Minor Mode - The Phrygian Major Mode .... and the rest I have to look at my notes to see their FORMULAS as I do not use them often, so I forget - But just by review - I get them back in my memory again --- But if you take your time view this lesson video and practice it every day for a few minutes eventually you will get it down pack in your head. You then apply what you learn physically on the guitar. Pay attention where is the Root/Tonic locate at ( what strings and fret number) - also pay attention on the fingering number to use for each notes and the name of each notes - it may take sometime but it is worthy to do so. Play slow, load and clear, better yet practice with a metronome at the speed that comfortable for you to make less mistake. .
