ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
JAM ANY TIME YOU WANT TO

The Jam Along Modal1 CD is a fun learning tool that provides the opportunity to play along, or sing along, with clear, well-balanced backing tracks that have rock-steady time. With nine instrumental Ionian and Dorian progressions at your disposal, you can jam along any time you want to. These tracks can really help you get the feel of playing in the modes, and make the time spent learning fun and easy.

JAM ALONG CDS ARE EASY TO USE

Simply play the CD in any standard audio CD player or computer CD drive, and jam along. There are no solos, vocals or melodies, just background tracks, so you can really stretch out. Each track lasts at least five or six minutes, so there is lots of solo time for you to try out new ideas and work on improving old ones.

THE MODES OF IONIAN AND DORIAN ARE A GREAT PLACE TO BEGIN

American music exploits the use of modes in Blues, Funk, Reggae, Latin, Rock, Folk, Country...virtually every style. The Ionian mode, or Diatonic Scale, generates the typical Folk, Country and simple Blues and Pop harmony sounds of Americana. Reggae also makes common use of this scale for many classic songs.

The Dorian mode is the Modal Scale most commonly used with the Blues. This music form is so pervasive it has, at times, dominated the American Music scene. Hard Rock is the lastest example of music that is saturated with the Blues. The sound is so strong, it even works over Mixolydian progressions which are actually Major in tonality. Mixolydian progressions will be included in the Modal 2 CD.

The inclusion of the Pentatonic and Blues Scale variations helps focus the sound on notes that are easily melodic. Jamming with these scales is very satisfying, producing a good sound by just relaxing and playing to the music. At the same time, the most comprehensive collection of techniques can be applied, including the use of the Modes included in the materials, Jazz Line Techniques and modern, Multi-Tonic or "out" techniques.
