I've pored over every internet article I can get my hands on regarding modal playing (modes); sometimes re-reading an article numerous times to understand the author's concept. I probably incorrectly associate modes with playing lead guitar but understand they're basically scales with alternate interval spacing that give different musical "flavors". If I'm understanding correctly, a guitarist can either use note(s) from outside of a song's key signature to produce this desired "flavor" (parallel, I believe is the term) OR switch between relative neck patterns/positions where all the notes played are within the song's key signature (series, I believe is the term). I can easily hear the "flavor" when introducing note(s) outside of a key, but not so much when playing the modes in series. What am I missing and why is this.......not accenting the right notes? How do do you fellow guitarists introduce modes into your lead playing?
