Advanced modal applications for crafting progressions & improvisations Our good friends Merriam and Webster define alchemy as the 'power or process of transforming something common into something special.' And while that gold thing never really worked out for those medieval cats, Glenn Seaborg, 1951 Laureate in Chemistry, succeeded in turning lead (atomic number 82) into gold using physics to force a minute quantity of lead to release three protons and thus produce gold (atomic number 79).

The looper pedal can be used for so many practical applications. It's an ideal learning tool for creating practice backing tracks at any tempo and in any key. You can also use a looper to set up grooves for jamming with friends and work on your soloing and improvisational skills. Many musicians also use the looper to try out pre-production ideas before a studio session or for orchestrating band parts. Artists use the loop pedal live in performance on stage because they can record, overdub, and improvise on the fly or produce backing tracks for a solo gig.

A chord progression is a series of chords that are constructed from scale degrees (usually Major and Minor scales), and then played in succession, usually repeated over and over again throughout a song. Chord progressions have tonal centers and can be thought of as ’modal’ in nature.

The Modal Alchemist completes Robbie's trilogy of courses focused on the modal approach for identifying tonal centers, building chord progressions, and crafting compelling solos over virtually any progression. In Modal Expose, Robbie showed you the seven modes that live within the seven notes of a major scale. He then revealed how major, minor, dominant and diminished arpeggios and chords are built from those seven notes and modes within that key. Using Robbie's simple "modal" formula you learned how to quickly grasp the underlying harmony of any chord progression. To ice the cake, Robbie showed you how to apply your newfound understanding of modal harmony to improvise melodic lines seamlessly across any set of chord changes, in any progression, in any key.

The first and second groups have equal opportunity to achieve success as a musician. You don’t need a formal music education to achieve a masterful level of play as long as you have a solid grip on the key principles and techniques that serve as the foundation for whatever style of contemporary guitar you embrace. Robbie Calvo’s Guitar Interactives presents key principles and techniques for rock, pop, blues, R&B and country guitar with an intuitive, hands-on curriculum free of tedious theory and repetitious exercises – you will play your way through the course applying what you learn immediately in an engaging musical context. Robbie has organized the course into five sections; Harmony & Theory, Chord Vocabulary, Scales & Arpeggios, Rhythm Guitar and Lead Guitar. Across those five sections, fifty key principles and techniques are presented and demonstrated in a logical progression of study.

Firstly, an important disclaimer… Modal Expose is NOT another one of those jazzer's mode courses or a thick theoretical syllabus; Modal Expose is simply a very accessible approach for first identifying a progression's tonal center and then crafting great sounding solos, which leverage the characteristic tones within that progression. Simple as that. If you already know what a major scale is and can play it in any key, you are good to go. First, Calvo shows you the seven modes that live within the seven notes of that scale. Next, Calvo reveals how the major, minor, dominant and diminished arpeggios and chords are built from those seven notes and modes within that key. Then Calvo demonstrates how to use his simple "modal" formula to also quickly grasp the underlying harmony of chord progressions. We guarantee these three epiphanies within the first thirty minutes of working through the course. No physics, no Greek required.

Robbie’s Power Of Five’ approach is zen-like in its simplicity, yet its musical firepower is powerful, sophisticated and wide-ranging. In short, Robbie will show you how to break out of the minor Pentatonic box using the very same minor Pentatonic box —just playing it in a different location on the fretboard. Follow Robbie’s Power of Five simple system to achieve stunning musical results over any progression without learning any new licks, shapes or muscle memory patterns. In fact, you’ll be able to use your same licks in these new locations on the fretboard to craft fresh-sounding lines over the same musical canvas.
