In this course we’ll be taking a detailed look at the Locrian mode, which is one of the less-frequently used modes. This mode works is typically used over the diminished chord and has a very dark sound.

We'll be focusing on learning the B Locrian mode in this course, which belongs to the home key of C major. We'll begin by learning to play it all over the fingerboard using the 'content over patterns' method, after which we will work through a series of bass grooves that put the mode to use. By the end of this course you should be very familiar with the sound of the Locrian mode and feel confident using it in your own lines.
