Daniel - YouTube has a lot of great stuff on Modes.. Try it out. Bars and honkey tonks are little resturants that serve alcholic drinks that are favored by local residents. by lynnylouwho Apr 22

It's a term from the 1920s and 1930s, if I'm not mistaken, You might look up words like "honky tonk" on Wikipedia, since it's an excellent source of information. ¡Buena suerte! by philvenditti Apr 22

Also... where can I find good content about Modes... I know something about Phrygian, Mixolydian, Aeolian modes but don't give a s**t on how to use them... please could you direct me to the right place? LOVE Daniel haha! by damniel Apr 22

I didn't understand half what you say... half because I'm not american, half cuz' my first language was Spanish so... what does "bars and honky tonks" means in a respectful use os the launguage... xD ok I'm overreacting... but could you explain? by damniel Apr 22

I played guitar professionaly for many many mnay years. In bars and honky tonks in the NE USA. Now I am a harp therapist starting my own training program. When you are looking for scales, don't forget to try some modes, too. Enjoy the musical journey! by lynnylouwho Apr 16
