negative harmony modes

As promised, finally we have the video on Modes and Negative Harmony!

In this video we see what happens when we apply Negative Harmony to modes. We also see:

  • An intro to one of the most important tools to understand modes: the Order of Brightness, and

  • The reason why Negative Harmony is (and should) be called "Negative". And yes, I changed my mind on this point since previously I preferred 'inverted harmony'.

  • And as usual, you can get tons of ideas on how to write music by taking previous melodies and progressions and running them through Negative Harmony

(Seriously, if you write music or even think about writing music, these videos on Negative Harmony are giving you all the secret weapons that are not yet widespread in the music writing community. Don't miss them!)

You can see all this in the video here.

To understand how to use Negative Harmony in your own music, see here how a master composer used Negative Melody to create a fantastic melody starting from another well-known melody:

And if you need more information on what this Negative Harmony thing is, and how it works, here's the video that started it all:

As you can see, to use all this it's necessary to know your scales and modes like the back of your hand.

That's not a problem, we got you covered. You too can become fluent in scales and modes and be able to improvise a lead over any chord progression, regardless how complex it is.

How? By taking the Master of the Modes guitar course where all the theory is done straight on the guitar fretboard, all the concepts are explained with immediate applicability, and where you are trained step-by-step by a revolutionary sequence of exercises that solidify the knowledge of all scales and modes in your mind.

Many students before you have taken Master of the Modes and have learned how to use them all. What are you waiting for?
