VINNIE MOORE Mini Lesson on Using Modes

Posted by Michael Mueller on January 12, 2010 at 11:41 AM

UFO guitarist and virtuoso Vinnie Moore announced at his web site that he's embarking on a solo tour of Europe in February 2010. Backing Moore onstage will be keyboardist/vocalist Mike DiMeo, bassist Lars Lehmann, and drummer Aquiles Priester. The band will be playing lots of Moore's music from over the years as well as some covers with DiMeo on vocals. See the list of confirmed dates below.

This week, Moore will be in Anaheim, California, for the 2010 winter NAMM show, where he will be signing autographs at the Dean Guitars and Engl Amplification booths, Friday and Saturday.

We found video footage (see below the tour dates) of Moore discussing his use of modes—which ones he likes, and when he likes to use them. His examples are particularly interesting, as they cast Moore in a much more bluesy and "countrified" mood than we're used to hearing.
