Camp MWG – Fall Modes 2020

Build your major modes skillset with 5 workshops, 4 office hours, PDFs, backing tracks, and more.


Sorry, camp enrollment is now closed.

 

I’ve been told that it's essential to learn the major modes on guitar, but I’m confused about how modes work and how to solo with them over chords. I feel like learning modes is impossible!


This is the reason you're stuck and not seeing results:


You know that modes are important to learn on guitar, but everything you’ve checked out so far is confusing and leads you nowhere in the practice room.


Sound familiar? Learning major modes can be a challenging experience, especially if you don’t have an organized, proven method of study to guide you.


Have you had any of these common mode learning experiences?


1. You learn to play a few modes but quickly forget them. Learning these shapes is like sand through your fingers.

2. Learning to play the modes is okay, but applying them to your solos seems impossible.

3. You learn the modes, but don’t know why you learned them other than someone said they were important.


Over the past 25 years, I've played over 2500 gigs, taught over 8000 private lessons, and given workshops all over the world to guitarists of all levels.


I’ve found that most online lessons and teachers overcomplicate major modes, making it difficult to learn with boring exercises that produce exactly zero results.


This is 100% not the case with the Fall 2020 Modes Camp.


In this 5-week camp, I walk you step-by-step through my proven learning method guaranteed to teach you authentic ii-V-I soloing and comping skills.


With the Fall 2020 Modes Camp, you benefit from my 25 years of jazz guitar experience, so you know exactly what to practice for immediate results.

 

3 Ways the Fall 2020 Modes Camp Transforms Your Playing:


1. Create Killer Solos With Any Mode - Learn how to apply every major mode to chords in your solos to bring out new and exciting colors in your lead guitar playing.

2. Move Between Modes Over Any Chord in Your Solos…On the Spot! - Learn how to use the concept of vertical vs. horizontal modes to play any mode all over the fretboard instantly and use multiple modes over any chord in your solos.

3. Play Any Major Mode in Any Key Instantly - Learn how to build, play, and solo with any mode using a simple formula that allows you to quickly find any mode in any key in any location on the neck instantly.

"He makes learning guitar so much fun you can't wait to practice! ..."

"I encourage anyone interested in learning how to play guitar to check out Matt's courses! His lessons are presented in a clear and concise manner, he takes you from the exercises to playing guitar right away. The production quality is excellent which makes it an enjoyable learning experience. I appreciate Matt's teaching philosophy that takes you from where you are to where you would like to go as a musician, he makes learning guitar so much fun you can't wait to practice!"

How to Get the Most from the Fall 2020 Modes Camp


1. Combine the Workshops, PDFs, and Office Hours - Learn about new material in the live workshops and on the replays, which you can watch at any time, practice that material from the PDFs, then bring any questions or concerns to the office hours for direct feedback and answers to your queries. This gives you a personalized approach to learning major modes on guitar.

You have lifetime access to these workshops, office hours, and supplementary material, so there’s no rush at all. Take your time and work at the best pace to fit your schedule.

3. Coaching from Matt - Post questions in the comment boxes or in the chat bubble in the bottom right of any lesson if you get stuck. I’m happy to answer your questions and give constructive feedback. You can also post unlisted YouTube videos for feedback on your playing.

 

Is This Camp Right for Me?


 

Who is the MWG Camp for?


This camp is designed for guitarists looking to increase their major modes skillset by learning the exact concepts legendary players use in their playing.


It's for guitarists who:

  • Are tired of learning theory all day and never actually jamming.
  • Are ready to learn lead guitar and want the best head start possible.
  • Want to have fun playing modes on guitar.
  • Want to learn at their own pace with personal attention to their questions.
  • Want a positive, friendly, and welcoming online guitar-learning experience.


I've been studying, teaching, and playing major modes on guitar for 25 years and I still find new ways to explore and apply these 7 sounds.

I want to share with you everything I've learned about how to play all 7 major modes so you can reach your musical goals quickly.

 

Who is this Camp NOT for?


As your head counselor, my job is to keep this camp positive, encouraging, and welcoming for EVERY guitarist who joins. That’s why this course isn’t for you if…

  • You’re looking for a “Guitar God quick” fix. There’s no such thing as an overnight guitarist. This program is about building a long-term relationship with the guitar that leads with enjoyment and real growth – not hype or impossible promises.

  • You’re not a team player. This isn’t American Idol for guitar, it’s not a competition. The MWG Community is a safe environment for new and experienced guitarists to support and learn from each other. This is for team players who encourage growth in their fellow guitarists – not trolls who heckle their peers.

  • You’re a Negative Nelly. If you like to complain, tear down, or argue with other guitarists just for the sake of it, this program isn’t for you. We’re about encouragement, welcoming new players, and positive, constructive feedback. No negative energy or comments allowed in this program.
