A few tricks for zooming around the fingerboard inspired by Billy. Lets say you wanted to zip up the neck fast on E7. Play the E, F# and G# on the low E then slide into the A major scale.and run it up the neck. How about running Em7 fast up the neck. (Assume E dorian). Play E F# G then run the A7 scale. How about G Phrygian? Use C aeolian. Whats the trick? Think of modes in order by flatting: 4 lydian 1 ionion 5 myxolydian 2 dorian 6 aeolian 3 phrygian 7 locrian This pattern is equivalent to the cycle of 4ths. So a note a 4th away is one mode higher on the cycle.. E major = A lydian E7 = A major E dorian = A7 E aeolian = A dorian, E phrygian = A aeolian So if you want to play F# dorian, use the B7 scale. Etc. I use this a lot moving up and down the neck.
