Play The 7 Modes in 7 Days (Tabs Incl.) Photo by Marta Monleón Modes are used in all kinds of musical styles like Jazz, Rock, Metal, Flamenco, etc. They create a certain mood or feel to your playing.

Supermarket Psychic A woman at the grocery store went to the register with these items in her cart: * a carton of eggs * a quart of orange juice * a head of romaine lettuce * a 2 lb. can of coffee * a 1 lb. package of bacon.
