Subject: RE: MODES FOR MUDCATTERS: A SYNTHESIS PRIMER
Jeeeeez I wish I culd get my mind around this. My particular learning disability seems to be that I can't grasp a theory concept very well until I can also hear it illustrated. Did anyone get one of those mode slide rules that guest Bruce was offering back in march? Know how to get one? I spent the better part of the day a month ago creating a colour chart of the intervals so I could teach myself the modes but intervals don't translate easily to the guitar and it is a painfully long process to get up to speed in any mode so as to catch the "sound" of the mode--and dammit, no Julie Andrews singing do, 1/2re, mi, fa, etc in my mind. Howdidja learn the sound?
