    Sarah has taken a somewhat daunting musical concept and has turned it into a very understandable and fun journey. The modes are broken down into bite size pieces that keep the student from being overwhelmed. There is just enough music theory that if you pay attention it will be very useful later on. All in all its a well done product and Sarah should be congratulated for her work!

    I’ve just completed working through all of the easy modes lessons. I must congratulate Sarah on a job well done. The videos are well produced, she explains ideas clearly and the playing is tasteful, achievable, and reflective of the concepts she is presenting.

    Many of the concepts were not new to me but that doesn’t mean I didn’t take away some valuable ideas and techniques. Sometimes, it just takes someone explaining things slightly differently from the way you’ve heard things a thousand times before and new connections start to happen. I would put Sarah’s series in that category for me personally. Recommended.

    I’ve just finished drilling thru the 8 lessons here. The methods taught by Sarah in Easy Modes makes writing a solo with modes straightforward using the patterns without requiring much other than applying the shapes as patterns. Anyone should be able to write a solo this way (as long as the correct pattern/key is applied).

    Skipping ahead in the Lessons, past where I was in the first week of studying, Sarah also has an excellent section in a later Lesson on “Building a Solo”, where she describes a method about taking solo writing in multiple passes or steps. So even after writing a solo using only the shapes, applying the tips from that “Building a Solo” section of the lesson, should clear up a lot of the ways solos go from “meh” to “solid” or “good”, basically, building it up into something cool.

    The solos in this package are great and a variety of musical melody styles- look at the description closely- metal, jazz, classical.

    Great program, study it, you won’t regret it! My hint: take learning this package as multiple passes. First, go thru it somewhat rapidly, within a few weeks, try not to get “stuck” or bogged down, because later concepts could clear up earlier confusion. Then later, after playing thru several solos and all the patterns in each lesson (even if not at fast tempo), go thru all the lessons a second time to dig into the material in depth. This worked well for me, after initially having some confusion. Keep motoring thru it.

    SPEED & ACCURACY

    These mode patterns that Sarah as developed or “discovered” are a perfect compliment to Doug’s Speed & Accuracy exercises. Definitely one of the reasons I was able to pick up the mode patterns so quickly, is because of so much time spent on the Speed & Accuracy previously. So I would say, anyone who has done Speed & Accuracy, should definitely pick up Easy Modes as the next step. It is the perfect program to apply the S&A skills. And get some killer modal solos as a result of that. S&A teaches patterns for speed, without the musical context. Easy Modes is like the perfect musical context for S&A practice.

    Or vice versa- Anyone who goes thru Easy Modes and hasn’t done Speed & Accuracy, should finish Easy Modes, continue to practice the Easy Modes patterns, and as a way to look at building speed, check out Speed & Accuracy. [* note since the S&A exercises are now in Doug’s new basic course, then anyone who has done the new 2017 basic course intermediate section, should be familiar with the S&A patterns.]
