7 Factor Takes you from Modes to Music

All music is made up of modes. When you understand modes, you will understand music. To take your playing to the highest levels possible, sooner or later, you will need a solid understanding of modes.

With 7 Factor, I take a unique approach to teaching the modes that’s simple, yet effective.
While some of the traditional methods might give you a decent understanding of modes, they are weak on application, leaving you with nothing that can be applied subconsciously.

This Is Not Another Boring Theory Class. 

7 Factor approaches modes and scales from two different perspectives:

  • Technical: Shapes, scales and fretboard visualization
  • Emotional: Intervals, moods and feelings.

You need both components to fully internalize and master modes. They will become an integral part of your musical brain and you will be able to access them reflexively, without thinking. 7 Factor is designed to create new habits to unlock your creative potential.

In addition, you will have support from the 9,000+ members of our Guitar Hacks Community!

Kiko dives into the seven modes and shows you how to apply all the feelings, images and moods each mode can represent as well as new ways to express yourself.

Technical Exercises, Shapes and Visualization

All music is based on modes and a better understanding of modes equals a better understanding of music.

Kiko gives an introduction to music fundamentals and explains why it's important. Kiko goes over fretboard visualization and provides examples of shapes and patterns and how they relate to the harmonic series.

Intervals, Sounds and

Kiko introduces us to intervals and explains how intervals are used to create moods and add dynamics to even the simplest musical passages.

You will hear how even a slight change in the interval can evoke certain moods; from dark and ominous, to uplifting and happy. 

In addition to answering  questions from the audience, Kiko expands on the concepts from the previous two sessions.

In this video, he touches on the blues and further shows how modes, and intervals, can evoke certain moods and emotions. 

The REAL ORDER of the Modes

A recap of the previous 3 days and more exploration into the feeling and sound of each mode and how to rank the modes from most Major to most Minor.

In this video, Kiko also analyses existing songs and plays them with mode alterations and answers questions from the audience.

Here’s what people are saying about Guitar Hacks

Guitar Hacks Student


What is unique about Guitar Hacks  is that Kiko not only tells you “what” to do  but he shows you “how” to practice it. This is where most courses fail IMO.

Is this different than Kiko's Workout Strategy?

Yes, 7 Factor is a distinct course, focused on Modes. Buying either course gives you access to the private Lives with Kiko but the course material itself is not shared.

One last thing,

We open the course in batches with limited spots as we want to focus on the quality of the community and make sure all  students benefit from this course. If the buy button is available that means there are still spots open. 

I really enjoy teaching and sharing my knowledge on guitar,

My goal for 2020 is to help as many guitar players as I can achieve the skills they need to be able to express themselves musically. To give them the ability to play what they want, and be creative without being limited by technique.
