Do you use Major Scale MODES?  Do you really understand them?


A NEW BOOK (+ E-Version also now available) takes a "fresh and unique approach" to understanding Major Scale Modes.  An "Amateur/Hobbyist" guitarist who struggled with existing literature on the subject  uses simple music theory building blocks in systematic "easy-to-follow" steps to construct  a comprehensive and logical interpretation of what modes are and their similarities and  differences.  He then applies that framework to playing them on guitar.   An "ALL-IN-ONE Manual" on Modes for the Guitarist!!!


Guitar Modes: From 'Mystery' to 'Method',

A Personal Journey of Discovery for Me & My Guitar

by Richard Cleary

ISBN 978-1-912333-22-6


PAPERBACK and a "NEW" E-VERSION - both available direct from Author (see below)




"At last a book on the subject of Modes that does not confuse the reader/student.  Richard's approach is both clean and precise.  The method he uses to explain this complex subject is quite simply awesome! The gate to the world of Modes is now open, enjoy yourself." Chris Porter  (Guitarist with "Seven More Days", 30+ years of guitar teaching experience)


"Richard has created a mode resource book with a unique approach, setting it aside from most formal music education literature.  With insightful analysis and accessible terminology this book will guide your learning journey with honest conclusions clearly outlined and explained.  For those baffled by the system of major scale modes this is a worthwhile read." Johnny Heyes (Session musician/guitar teacher)
