While this video doesn't go into great detail about how modes are constructed (it's assumed that you already know this much), Frank endeavors to show you how each mode can be utilized as a separate and distinct sound that is available over the entire fingerboard.

Frank demonstrates each mode over unique progressions and vamps that really highlight the sound and mood of each mode. He then goes on to play a composition that he wrote utilizing the Lydian, Ionian and Dorian modes.

This video is chock full of close-ups giving the veiwer not only a great foundation in modal usage, but a glimpse into Franks unique fretboard approach. The performances alone are enough of a reason to buy this video. The understanding that you will gain about the modes makes this video a required additon to your library of study materials.
