Joe Satriani on ‘The Modes’: Pt 2

Following on from a earlier post, here’s Joe Satriani with Part Two of his lesson on using modes in your improvisation.

He talks here about different situations and styles of music, and when mixing up the modes works and when not.

The emphasis is on expression and emotional impact rather than scales; expressing something with artistic value, not just ‘sounding technical’.

It’s great stuff from a great artist!
