The Pentatonic Players Guide to Mastering the Modes

Are you a guitarist that loves the Pentatonic scale, but wish you could add new sounds to it without learning a bunch of music theory?


What if I told you that it IS possible to capture the flavor and sound of all 7 of the modes by just using ONE familiar pentatonic pattern that you already know?

Pentatonic Player's Guide To Mastering The Modes


An Example Of What You Will Learn


But learning the modes is super tricky... right? NOPE!!!

After years of searching, I have never found anyone who makes modal playing easier to understand than Robbie Calvo.

He is the go-to man for learning how to evoke the sounds of the modes within your playing.

Great thing is, in this course, he shows you how to do it using only one Pentatonic shape!!!

In this step-by-step guide he will show you how to sound amazing, immediately in any one of the 7 modes using just one Pentatonic shape!

I know it sounds too good to be true, but it's not. This course makes the modes simpler than ever to understand and apply instantly into your own playing.

The result?

A course that lets you take your own licks, regardless of your playing ability, and instantly capture the sounds of any of the seven modes all over the neck, without ever having to learn somebody else's licks, or tons of music theory!

To all you shredders out there, if you think this course sounds too easy for you, wait until you see what happens when you combine this concept with all five Pentatonic shapes... the melodic magic potential will blow your mind!

Who would have thought shifting a single five-note Pentatonic scale shape around the neck would be the key to unlocking the mystery of the modes!!!

In this IN-DEPTH INTERVIEW we will learn:

  • A handful of Robbie's most coveted and soulful licks
  • His unique approach to solo and melody creation
  • How to seamlessly and tastefully add double-stops, chromatic runs, arpeggios and interesting interval choices to your solos. Change interesting to ear grabbing interval choices that will change your solo phrasing from typical into memorable

I couldn't pass on the opportunity to pick his brain and find out how he became the truly amazing guitar player that he is today.

"By far the simplest presentation of the Modes I've found. I'd searched the depths of YouTube only getting more and more confused. Robbie Calvo presents the basics and details of modality very clearly.

He emphasizes what most instructors miss, Modes are a tool not only for playing over chord changes BUT creating a MOOD, His solos are very clearly presented and he breaks out of the first position for you to get the feel of the modes in other places on the neck under your fingers "

- Jeffery

"Amazing TEACHER! All other lessons on the modes (some of them done from real good and talented guitarist’s) were like "nuclear physics" to me. Robbie took an approach that really made it simple. After the first two lessons I already knew how to play solos in other modes. "

- Femia
