Introducing Modes Symmetry School

Want to play guitar better than anyone? Are you a rock, metal, jazz, funk or classic musician? Then this app is just for you!

This is an unique collection of guitar modes that gives you an excellent original material for improvisations! "Guitar Modes Symmetry School" is a triple horizontal system, in which modes are played with 3-notes-per-string approach. Unlike the "vertical-traditional" fingering, this school presents "horizontal-extended" fingering, that helps to perform modes in 2-3 octaves bound. Such artists as Shawn Lane, Frank Gambale, John McLaughlin, Allan Holdsworth, Guthrie Govan, Paul Gilbert, Steve Vai, Richie Kotzen, Joe Satriani and others used to practice extended fingering in their songs. This school will help you to take possession top technique, i.e. you will be able to more quickly achieve technique perfection. Material inside this app represents our several years experience, and we hope it will give you some pleasure!

About Right Hand

All modes presented in this app can be performed using sweep picking or legato technique. However, we recommend you to use a standart picking technique only (up, down, up, down... or down, up, down, up... etc.) when performing these modes.

Where are the major scales? Where is the open string? I am not happy! Where is the trainer for the scales. If I do not find an trainer app. To guide. I will cancel my subscription If I do not here a response. even the some boxes are inverted.

Craig


Hello Craig! Your opinion is very important for us. You have probably missed that the major scale (the Ionian scale) is presented in Guitar Modes at 1st and 8th exercise number. Your demand about open strings is not suitable: Guitar Modes concept implies only three notes to be played with three left hand's fingers on each string. This technique used widely among the professional guitarists and allows to achieve high performance speed.

Thank you for using Fonexsis apps! We hope it helps you to improve your guitar skills.

I bought the app but I was disappointed because each mode should have the 7 positions on the fretboard instead of just one. I feel I paid to much just for one position. :-?

All the seven positions are presented. For example, mode no.1 - C Ionian I (position I), mode no.2 - D Dorian II (position II of C Ionian), no.3 - E Phrygian III (position III of C Ionian) etc. All 7 positions. The same thing with all the other modes in the app.
And "Mode" button is intended to switch between these positions.
So please stop confusing people with incorrect information. ;-)

No open postions? :-*

Open string notes contradict an idea of this app: three fingers on a string. Without open strings, using 3 fingers per string you can easily memorize and play the modes, that's what the Modes Symmetric System is intended for.

Hi
I bought the app symetric mode hd and hd app bebop mode, both very nice, although I would like to see in the symetric mode tre "variation" as in musical scales bebop. Thanks :-)

Thanks for the question. There isn't "variation" button in modes app due to limitations to the number of modes inside the app. We plan to expand the number of modes with each free update.

Fonexsis also planning creation of apps, in which there will be variations of 2, 3, 4 notes per string and mixed note systems, for example how it is done in our Bebop app.
