Lesson Text: Learn to Play Guitar with Dave Martone Dave Martone's guitar lessons are for intermediate and advanced players who like to develop their technical and improvisational skills. Dave's energetic and inspirational teaching style will make you spend hours on your guitar. For intermediate players, Dave offers lessons that explore the Dorian and the Aeolian mode, intro to Diminished 7th chords, vamps using 3rds over pedal notes, moving 6th patterns, and more modes, including Ionian, Phrygian, Lydian, Mixolydian and Locrian. The advanced guitar player will learn intervals beyond the octave, soloing with double stops and partial chords, odd time, speed picking and sweep picking, string skipping, and multi-finger tapping. Explore advanced arpeggios and the creative use of pentatonic scales, and put it all together by combining scales and modes.
