Modal Mojo is an in-depth and complete lesson on modes for modern guitarists. With its 84-page book, and over eight hours of audio instruction, demonstration, and play-along tracks, this is truly one of the most complete studies of the modes available for players of any level. Mock includes etudes and rhythm examples for each mode as he takes you step-by-step through all 28 modal grooves. He demonstrates the use of arpeggios, sequences, intervals, chromatics, and optional scales to make your modal improvising more melodic and interesting. The book also features a special Resource Section, which illustrates the best scale patterns for the modes and important modal chord substitution concepts.

The 28 play-along grooves are performed live by guitarist Don Mock, bassist Steve Kim, and drummer Dave Coleman, and cover all the common and not-so-common Dominant 7th, Major and Minor modes. The tracks are creative real-world performances with dynamic and color changes, which can inspire new ideas from the practicing musician. The trio performs the grooves using contemporary jazz, Latin, fusion, and rock feels in various tempos and keys. Not only are the play-along grooves a valuable resource for developing improvisational skills, but also offer a wealth of ideas for rhythm and comping.

"I'd like to say I am extremely pleased with the service your company has provided me. I'll be receiving my new Sonor Force tomorrow and am very excited. This shopping experience has been pleasant and satisfying. The price was killer and the kit will be awesome. Also, sending me the drum heads I wanted free of charge was an unexpected bonus that I will never forget."

"When my fiancé told me he wanted an acoustic guitar for his birthday, I had no idea how I was going to pull it off. However, this site made it very easy for me. It is very easy to find what you are looking for and the "related items" helped me pick out some accessories. I did experience a problem when it came to shipping. One of my items was reported as delivered by UPS. But when I contacted ActiveMusician, they sent out another stand right away, and it still arrived in time! I have nothing but good things to say about this site, and I have already started telling everyone about them!"
