The Modes Explained

modes explained

Written By Paulo from DoReMiStudios.com.au

Modes are scales that allow you to improvise over different types of chords. They are particularly useful to improvise over chord progressions that include chromatic chords (i.e. chords that do not belong to the key of the progression). You create a set of modes by starting a scale on a note other than the root and then continue to ascend for an octave.

Audio Interface

If you want to record your music from your home there are a few things that you cannot go without. One item that is at the top of the list is your audio interface.
You need to be sure that you get the right interface, one that can support everything that you plan on running like your guitars, mics, keyboards and so on. The audio interface essentially transfers the sound from your instrument to your computer.
For those of you who are new to this concept here are a couple different options that would be a great way to go if you don’t want to have to upgrade within the first few months.

KLOS Carbon Fiber Travel Guitar | Review

klos review

Some history on the company before I begin my KLOS Review: Back in May of 2015 brothers Ian & Adam Klosowiak launched their first kickstarter for the carbon fiber guitar that they designed and built themselves. Fast Forward to February 2017 and they are launching their newest version of KLOS Guitars! The idea for the carbon fiber travel guitar came shortly after Alan left his dorm window open when he went away on break. While he was gone the cold dry air did what it tends to do to wooden guitars and cracked it from the bridge all the way to the end of the soundboard. They wanted to make a guitar that could handle all elements as well as the dangers of traveling with a guitar. Thanks to Ian’s mechanical background and his knowledge of guitars the first KLOS carbon fiber travel guitar became a reality. 

Wireless MIDI Controller for Acoustic Guitar

If you have been waiting for a MIDI controller for your acoustic guitar then you are in for a treat! ACPAD knocked it out of the park with their Bluetooth capable MIDI controller. It will transform your everyday average guitar playing into a one man show that can compete with any garage band (it does help if you already know how to play the guitar). The controller allows you to play the sounds of literally hundreds of instruments, that’s why I would consider this to be the most useful as well as the coolest accessory for acoustic guitars, just slap it on, download the software and you’re ready to go!
