Tuning down your guitar will change the sound of your instrument. There are a good amount of songs out there that will require you to change the sound of your instrument. Sometimes tuning your guitar to the correct pitch is much easier said than done. It can be a challenge to get each cord just right, even if you have been playing for a good length of time you may run into difficulty now and again. Don’t let tuning your guitar get in the way of playing the songs that you love and and are interested in learning to play for yourself.
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.
