Minor Modes

"Just finished watching your video on Modes. I really enjoyed it and found it very useful. Will you be expanding more on the other modes (minor modes)? It would be interesting dive deeper in."

The minor modes are Dorian, Phrygian and Aeolian. Do you mean the harmonic and melodic minor scale modes? If yes, I don't plan on covering them because with very few exceptions they just don't occur in popular music. They still can be interesting to explore but be careful not to get ahead of yourself. There is so much fundamental guitar theory that you need to know before delving into more advanced topics.

Harmonic Minor Scale Guitar
When you're ready I recommend checking out the following books from Dock Mock on harmonic and melodic minor scales for guitar.
