      I just want to publicly commend Johnny for the best explanation of modes that I’ve ever seen. It’s located in his improvisation course major scales. I was exposed to modes many years ago from studying pedal steel but I would always wonder which mode to use and when. Inevitably I was playing modes on steel but didn’t know it. Now I get it. Playing the chord scale the band is in at that moment starting from one of the arpeggiated chordal note degrees whether it be root or 3rd or 5th or maj7, etc, relative to the chord the band is playing was the key to my understanding to play in a sounding good zone when of course not playing melody. Thank you. Liam


        hey thanks Liam, most times people just make it too complicated and confusing, so ya I think those exercises in that course really simplify it.
