“Talking about music is like dancing of architecture” (Frank Zappa Martin Mull)

If you’ve been with me on this newsletter for a while, you know that I make videos on your request. This is one of them :)

The funny part about this videos is that I’d have no idea how to describe in words the sound we are going to learn. I’m going to call it the ‘mystery sound’, even if there’s nothing mysterious about it.

If you watch the very first 5 seconds of the video, you’ll get what I mean immediately. But can you describe it verbally?

So here’s the first challenge for you. Send me an email with a verbal description of the “mystery sound” that would make sense to someone who is just reading an article…

(Who knows, maybe it’s easy to describe and I’m the only one who can’t. After all, as you probably have noticed from my cavalier disregard of grammar and syntax, English is not my first language…)

When you click on the video below to hear the “mystery sound”, you will also notice that today’s video is a bit longer than usual.

I am already rolling my eyes looking forward to all the insufferable friendly emails telling me that I need to get to the point and not talk this much ;-)

You can kindly take these emails and stuff them in y… I gladly welcome the concerned feedback. And this time there is a very good reason for the length of the video.

Usually when I see guitar teachers explain this ‘mystery sound’, they just give you a bunch of licks.

In this video I am showing you not only a few licks, but I am also showing you how to write your own licks, and how to change the lick you already know to accommodate the ‘mystery sound’.

Another simple idea that has a disproportionate impact on your guitar lick is described here.

When you start watching the video, it’s underwhelming… when you understand how powerful it is, it’s overwhelming:

Do you know ALL your scales and modes in all position and can play them without thinking? If the answer is not an immediate YES, then check out the Master of the Modes guitar course
