Interesting lesson! It'd be great to have a look at a lick or an example of how to use this scale when improvising or a composition. :)

Nice lesson! I was just barely familiar with the Hungarian scale ( I may have seen it on the Jazzology Book) but I did not know the other two scales. I dig the 'exotic' sounds of the three of them though.. thanks for sharing!

Great sounding licks. I'm already learning them. the quartal harmony one is golden. I had never tought of improvising in melodic minor like that.

Very interesting lesson. One of the best advice I've gotten and I always recommend to fellow musicans, is to sing whatever you're playing with your instrument, or at least practicing intonation with the instrument as well. The exercise of the video looks quite useful, it really looks like a good way to interiorize the chord tones.

Another interesting case of a composer who didn't know how to play the instruments they wrote for is JoaquĆ­n Rodrigo; he wrote the most emblematic piece for classical guitar, El Concierto De Aranjuez, without knowing how to play guitar (he was a pianist). Shows you that it's all about understanding the language of music and the instrument. I agree with your choice of instruments for composing. Being able to sing the melody is crucial, since it means that you understand it and are able to reproduce it. Guitar, as you said, is great for sketching songs, and the piano is great for arranging. I personally like composing with a guitar; once I have something I like, I record a bass that sounds interesting against the guitar part. Then add extra parts or arrangements with keyboard. But sometimes I start with a bass part, or a keyboard or drum part, it really depends where I got the idea first. As you say, a lot of this really depends on the genre of music you're writing for, but knowing how to build chords and melodies on piano and guitar is really helpful. Great video!

Giving more importance to rythm than the actual notes it's a great tip for every musician. You can always connect the 'wrong' notes in some way, but if the rythm is off, nothing makes sense.
Anxious about improvising? Learn Some Patterns!

Well, I find this lessons quite interesting and easy to understand! I've always felt that the acoustic guitar has a lot to offer in terms of musical language, and just strumming the basic chords through a song can sound boring ( at least for me). Of course, there's always an exception, but most times I think that adding things like fingerpicking patterns, licks and percussive sounds to a song really help making it sound much more interesting. Regarding good tpoics to cover, what about alternate tunings and fingerpicking patterns for that kind of tunings ? Would you say that there could be different fingerpicking patterns to those tunings?
