Over 50 Common and Exotic Scales and Modes For Guitar

by Mark John Sternal

Scales are the foundation of music and can be found in every known culture. With all styles of modern music, scales are the heartbeat, breath and soul of the guitar solo, the guitar riff and even the vocal melody! This video course includes every guitar scale you’ve ever wanted to learn - presented in a simple root to octave format, starting with basic scales, such as major, minor, pentatonic and blues, and then progressing into patterns that span all musical styles and cultures, even including exotic scales such as the Balinese, Hirojoshi and Kumoi.

There are over 50 scales for you to use right away to spice up your guitar playing, each with an on-screen demonstration at both a slow and fast tempo. The bottom half of the screen provides you with the option of reading sheet music in the form of note charts, traditional notation, or tablature (TAB). As a bonus, you also get important tips on changing musical keys, jumping octaves and extending each scale to a higher and lower pitch, which will ultimately help you navigate your fretboard with precision and accuracy.

All I can say is WOW... Tons of information, February 9, 2013 By Kyle J. Ferris (Buffalo, NY USA)
This DVD from Mark Sternal didn't disappoint me. Once again he covers aspects of scale usage and how modes function in each. If you want clear cut answers and learn something that you will use the rest of your life, this is it. He covers a lot of ground to include the exotic scales that you don't hear about or see on youtube. Many of these other scales can be used in many musicial applications. I am so glad I bought this DVD.

Easy to understand and learn from as a beginner says my son. Given to him as a Christmas Gift. Thanks!

A Worthwhile Value, February 24, 2011 By Brother MOLOCH 969 (Cleveland, Ohio)
I've been playing guitar on & off since 1988. By no means do I consider myself some sort of advanced player. With that in mind, I have to give Mark props for this DVD. He not only explains the concept of using the Whole-Step/Half-Step formula for making scales as well as showing you dozens of unique scales and how to play them in a medium then fast tempo.

The patterns he shows you are explained to tell you at which fret to start with what finger. He also explains the concept of octaves which is a valuable lesson in & of itself. He goes on to explain playing scales through two octaves, again not something you typically find in instructional DVD's and great for a beginner to know.

While this is not the CAGED system, he does show how its done with the patterns given and he shows you literally tons of patterns from the Neopolitan to the Harmonic Major/Minor, to the Oriental/Chinese/Japanese scales & more.

This DVD is not meant to be used as a stand alone lesson becauss he has several other DVD's that cover chords, theory, basics/beginner, tricks, and so on. It's like getting lessons in a format that you can take inexpensively. Hard to complain about an instructional DVD that costs less than $12.00.

I recommend the system to those who are in the beginner to medium stage of development. I give it 5 out of 5 stars for its completeness & understandability.
