Hi

Really enjoyed Master the Major Scale. At the end, Justin mentions a few things which are going to be covered in a follow up DVD and from what I can tell there isn't going to be a follow up. That being the case, what is the next logical thing to study which might cover the things Justin was talking about? Modes, different keys, single string soloing etc.

The next thing I would recommend is a DVD by Frank Gambale

https://www.amazon.com/Modes-More-Mystery-Frank-Gambale/dp/B00007CWIA


Frank explains them very clearly and plays examples so you can hear the differences. Ignore the fact that it looks a little dated and cheesy. The information in the DVD is outstanding.

Look at the these scale shapes. You will have learnt them from the "master the major scale"  DVD .


Understand that they are NOT just major scale shapes. They are really chunks of diatonic notes. Every mode is inside every shape.  Play from  1 to 1 and you play the major scale (ionian mode). Play from 5 to 5 and you play the myxolydian scale/mode. Play from 6 to 6 and you have the minor scale (aeolian mode).  The key to understanding and using these 5 patterns is to memorise the numbers. If you can memorise the numbers as well as the patterns then you can relatively easily play any mode anywhere on the fretboard.

Look at the patterns and note the chunks of 7134. They are great signposts that help you keep orientated. Note the kink in the tuning that causes the 7134 chunks to change shape in patterns 4 and 5.


Know your octaves.


So if you memorise the shapes, memorise the numbers, know your octave patterns and understand modes then you have a set of powerful tools at your fingertips.

P.S.  Remove notes 7 and 4 from those patterns and you now have the pentatonic shapes.

I'd agree with both Matt and Omar.  Modes and Blues Lead.


Modes are also covered by Justin here

https://www.justinguitar.com/en/SC-501-ModesIntro.php

Blues Lead - https://www.justinguitar.com/en/BL-400-EssentialBluesLeadGuitar.php

I'll be looking at both of these, when i complete/consolidate MTMS.

Do the PMT, if you haven't done it yet, and get comfortable with the major scale in several different keys,  including C. This is important, so that you don't just know one path up and down the neck. After that, do the blues lead course, taking note of when he mentions Dorian, and then the modes lessons mentioned above. For all of this, use a looper and backing tracks (and a jam buddy, if possible.) But definitely a looper.
Squier Custom II Telecaster, Yerasov GTA 15, Vox AC4, Big Muff, Vox Wah, Bad Monkey, Belcat Analog Delay, Phase 90, Ditto X2, Dyna Comp, Splash MkIII, Boss TU3, bashed-up acoustic, Keyser and Shubb capos, picks, Voodoo Labs Pedal Power
