MetroDrone is a core addition to Ear Training and Instrumental Practice now available with an acoustic bass or tuba sound!

MetroDrone is our best selling product of all time!!

We are super-excited about this new invention which Bruce Arnold calls the "MetroDrone. It will greatly enhance both your practice time, and the rate at which your playing and musicianship improves.

Bruce Arnold states that the MetroDrone is a CORE practice tool!

MetroDrone should be a new addition to the CORE products you use to reach your full potential as a musician...

Two versions of the MetroDrone

Difference between Acoustic Bass and Tuba MetroDrone

  • Acoustic Bass MetroDrone Sound is much longer in duration than the Tuba MetroDrone making it easier to hear the key center. 10 to 60bpm MP3 files
  • Tuba MetroDrone Sound is much shorter in duration than the Acoustic Bass MetroDrone making it much harder to hear the key center and therefore is recommended for the advanced ear training student. Also has slower MP3 files 8 to 60bpm MP3 files

MetroDrone lets you:

  • Practice singing exercises in time and speed them up, to master real-time ear-training recognition and execution.
  • Practice ear training even when you are practicing scales or any other technique on your instrument.
  • Develop lightning speed by using the included "long line rhythm" concept (considered a “holy grail” by many guitarists). Video and PDF included.

MetroDrone works any place you use a metronome and with many ear training exercises

MetroDrone will work with any Muse-Eek book you own -or one from any other company. But to most effectively use this new tool – it would be best for Mr. Arnold to understand how you currently practice your instrument, and ear training.

Unsure if MetroDrone is right for you?

Unsure how to use it or if it's right for you? – Use the contact email at bottom of the page and Mr. Arnold will personally review your current practice schedule – and advise you on possible improvements, and how to integrate MetroDrone into your practice time for maximum results.

Ideas for using MetroDrone

Bruce Arnold says that hearing chord progressions is a topic that comes up frequently with students of ear training. You will probably have to gain some basic skills with identifying pitches within a key center before you can tackle how you hear chord progressions but there are some things you can do with the MetroDrone MP3s to start preparing now for this exciting aspect of ear training.

Think the same way you hear

The overall thing to realize is always THINK THE SAME WAY YOU HEAR. What do I mean by this? I mean that you can listen to a chord progression in a song, and if you sing or play the melody, you will probably HEAR some or all of it in the key of the song. But when you play or sing over a chord progression, it is easy to start thinking about all the different scales you could play, and lose sight of the key center.

So that is why it is important to think the same way that you hear. This will make your playing much more musical and you will truly express the music you hear inside yourself. The main purpose of the MetroDrone is to get you always thinking the same way you are hearing. If you practice a C scale with a C MetroDrone going on in the background you are thinking about a C scale and you are hearing it in relationship to the key of C. This gets progressively more important as you work with more and more complicated material.

Now let's turn our attention to how THINKING THE SAME WAY YOU HEAR applies to a chord progression. If we have a chord progression you will either hear the whole progression in one key or parts of the progression in one key. This will depend on how quickly the chords are moving one to another and the tempo of the tune. Usually the longer you stay on a chord the better chance you will have of hearing that chord in its own key center.

Specific Example

Everyone will vary on how they exactly hear the same progression, though in many cases it will be similar. Let's take a simple chord progression as an example: C Major to F7. Let's say there are two measures of C Major and one of F7. The tempo would be medium, around 100 BPM. When you play the F7, most likely you will not hear a new key center; you will hear F7 in relationship to the key of C. This will affect what scale you should use and how you will hear the notes of the of F7 chord.

READ THIS it's important!

Usually if you play an F7 chord you wouldn't think of it as an F Mixolydian scale BUT we are not hearing the F7 in the key of F; we are hearing it in the key of C so you would think of it as a C Dorian scale because you are in the key of C not in the key of F. Yes, a C Dorian scale and an F Mixoldyian scale are the same notes BUT if you are hearing in the key of C and the F7 chord is playing and you hear a melody in your head with scale degrees b3, 2, 1 then you would play Eb, D, C not Ab, G, F. What I've just stated is one of the most important lessons you will ever learn about hearing music and why my ear training method is crucial to developing compositional and improvisational skills.

Aural Comprehension is key to musical success

Now if you listen again to the notes of the F7 chord as you are hearing it in the key of C, you will not hear: F=1, A=3, C=5, Eb=b7 you will hear: F = 4, A = 6, C= 1, Eb = b3. As you can see, this is a pivotal step to understanding how your hear chord progressions and again why key center ear training is so important. Check out the book called Secondary Dominants Ear Training Studies that applies this same logic to all the Secondary Dominant chords. It's crucial that you learn this information NOW so you don't have to rewind and start hearing the correct way later on. It's important to realize how you are hearing chord progressions as opposed to how you are hearing the melodies in your head.

Practicing Scales with MetroDrone

Let's relate these ideas to practicing scales. Most professional musicians spend about 20 years practicing the scales. Practicing them in the right way is crucial so make sure you have either the Essential Scales book or the New York Guitar Method Volume One. Here is an unusual but highly productive way to use the MetroDrone when working with scales that relates to the discussion we just had about hearing chord progressions. The usual way musicians practice scales is to play them cycle 5 --so if you had a Major scale you would first play it in C then F, Bb, Eb, Ab etc... Instead of switching MetroDrone MP3s for each new key, just use a C MetroDrone and move through the modes of C Major all the while a C MetroDrone is sounding. This will get you processing scales all in one key which is the same thing that will happen when you are hearing a whole progression in one key as we previously discussed.

Applying MetroDrone to Modes

So you start with playing C Major (in all positions if you play a stringed instrument)

  • Then play a C Dorian Scale (which is actually a Bb Major Scale but you are hearing the notes in "C" so it's C Dorian.)
  • Then play C Phrygian (which is actually a Ab Major Scale but you are hearing the notes in "C" so it's C Phrygian.)
  • Then a C Lydian (which is actually a G Major Scale but you are hearing the notes in "C" so it's C Lydian.)
  • Then a C Mixoldian (which is actually a F Major Scale but you are hearing the notes in "C" so it's C Mixolydian.)
  • Then a C Aeolian (which is actually a Eb Major Scale but you are hearing the notes in "C" so it's C Aeolian.)
  • TThen a C Locrian (which is actually a Db Major Scale but you are hearing the notes in "C" so it's C Locrian.)

So you have played through all 7 modes of C Major!

  • Then I would take a break and later or the next day do the same process in the key of F with an F MetroDrone.
  • This way you will practice all the modes of major and start applying them the way you will hear them in many chord progressions.
  • (See Secondary Dominant book for more information on how how all this applies to the modes of Melodic Minor Ascending.)

MetroDrone and common chord progressions

Just so you can see some common chord progressions and how you might hear them in one key and the scales you would use, here are some examples:

  • C Major to F7 and hear that all in the key of C then you are moving between C Major Scale and a C Dorian Scale.
  • C Major to F-7 and hear that all in the key of C then you are moving between C Major Scale and a C Aeolian Scale.
  • C Major to Db Major and hear that all in the key of C then you are moving between C Major Scale and a C Phrygian Scale.
  • C Major to C-7b5 and hear that all in the key of C then you are moving between C Major Scale and a C Locrian Scale.

As you can see from this discussion how you hear greatly affects how you should think and play. This is why working with MetroDrone can lay the right foundation for your success with music.

Modal Sequencing -Two Note for All Instrumentalists

Two Note Modal Sequencing for All Instrumentalists

Modal Sequencing has long been a tool that musicians use to create great melodies and to improve their technical ability and aural comprehension. This series of courses covering Two, Three and Four Note Modal Sequencing provides a student with a comprehensive range of information on multiple levels to help understand this crucial aspect of music. Twenty Nine different modes are covered for a student to practice and master these important structures. Each course from Modal Sequencing shows how every melodic sequence could be changed to create not only other melodic but also rhythmic permutations, which gives an improviser many choices when applying these melodies. A PDF showing the modal sequence along with MP3s and Midifiles to hear each exercise have been included for all sequences. This greatly aids overall development because the student can check their accuracy when playing, singing or doing ear training exercises. Each course of the Modal Sequencing provides you with multiple exercises that you can do to improve your ear training skills. No matter how you use these exercises, by working with them you are using musically familiar patterns that will prepare you to improvise or compose over common melodies you encounter throughout your musical life.

There are many ways these modal sequences can help your musicianship. Below are just some of the uses you will find for these courses:

  • Developing new ideas for improvising whether you are a beginner or an advanced player
  • Developing a deeper knowledge of the scales included in this study.
  • Developing your technical skills. Modal Sequences are a "super" chops building machine.
  • Developing your ear training skills by singing and hearing various examples.
  • Developing the ability to both technically and aurally recognize common melodic movement.
  • Developing a melodic language that allows you to be more compositional in your improvisations
  • Developing a way to organize scalar ideas.
  • Developing a way to use these melodic patterns on multiple metric levels.

What's in each Course?

First, if you look further down on this page you will see examples from PDFs from the series so you can get a better idea of the layout of each course. Modal sequencing is playing through a scale with a pattern, such as playing a scale ascending and descending with thirds. This type of technique has been around since at least the 17th century. One listen to Johann Sebastian Bach's music will give you many examples of using modal sequencing as will listening to any Jazz, Blues or Heavy Metal player.

The Two, Three and Four Note Modal Sequencing course uses 29 scales which include the following:

    This course concentrates on Two Note Melodic Sequences through 29 scales. There is a Bundle which contains all 29 scales or individual courses that contain only a subset of these scales. Below is a breakdown of the individual courses available for Two Note Modal Sequencing.

  • Two Note Modal Sequencing Bundle contains all 29 Scales
  • Two Note Modal Sequencing Group 1 contains the modes of Major
  • Two Note Modal Sequencing Group 2 contains the modes of Melodic Minor Ascending
  • Two Note Modal Sequencing Group 3 contains Symmetric, Major/Minor Pentatonic, Blues and Two modes of Harmonic Minor
  • Two Note Modal Sequencing Group 4 contains the modes of Harmonic Major

Videos Included!

Videos are included to help you apply modal sequencing and play them more musically.

Here is a list of videos include:

    Different scales are used more in certain idioms. Here are some overall recommendations:

  • If you want to develop a well rounded music education and know 29 of the most used scales purchase the Bundle(s).
  • Traditional rock players should choose Groups 1 and 3
  • Jazz players should choose the Bundle(s).
  • Country music players should choose Groups 1 and 3.
  • Blues only players should choose Group 3.
  • Heavy Metal players should choose Groups 1, 2 and 3.
  • Country music players should choose Groups 1 and 3.

Quick Links to Each Course

Each course includes a massive amount of PDFs, MP3s and Midifiles so that you can customize your study. Purchase the Bundle(s) to save money or individual courses if you prefer a single download.

Two Note Modal Sequencing Bundle

2 Note Modal Sequencing for All Instrumentalist Bundle by Bruce Arnold for Muse Eek Publishing Company

Two Note Modal Sequencing Bundle is the most cost effective way to study!

The Bundle contains all 29 scales in the Two Note Series. It will allow a student to learn the most commonly used scales on their instrument plus it contains multiple ear training exercises to internalize the common melodies that are used in all types of music. If you want MEGACHOPS then look no further. These modal sequences will give you a massive quantity of awesome melodies and if you use the midifiles you can speed up your technique over time. These modal sequences are also great for exploring new improvisational ideas, so if you are tired of playing the same old thing, then this is the ticket to expanding your melodic palette!

Two Note Sequences Contain All Melodic Intervals Within an Octave

Remember that the two note modal sequences contain all melodic intervals so learning these sequences prepares you for any melody. In addition, the 29 scales provide you a lexicon of multiple melodic intervals within each sequence so you are covering a large number of the melodic shapes you may find in music.

Who should use the Modal Sequencingcourse?

The quick answer is EVERYONE! But seriously, these sequences help you develop new ideas for improvisation and they will show up in your playing fast. They built build mega-chops but they also make your improvisation more compositional because you can pick sequences that have more affinity with a particular song rather than playing the same type of melodies on all songs. Modal Sequences also help you learn your instrument better and help you recognize scale patterns quickly. Modal sequences sound good at a slow or fast tempo so you will get great use out of them in your improvisations.

Playing Modal Sequences at Different Metric Levels

Playing modal sequences at multiple metric levels not only makes every sequence you learn more useful, but by also changing the type of rhythm used you can further disguise the sequence. Our Two Note Modal Sequence course goes into great detail on these subjects.

Examples from the Bundle Course Package.

Below are some examples from the Bundle Course which contains all 29 modes. There are five different types of files and each is tailored for a specific student level. You will find even more examples if you scroll down into the individual course offerings.

  • These type of files are meant for an advanced student who only needs to work with the ascending version of a sequence and can deduce the rest of the notes.
  • There are no audio files with these sequences.
  • Each sequence is presented in all 12 keys.
  • These files present all the 2 Note Modal Sequences in one file which moves through all 12 keys.
  • There is no audio for these types of files.
  • Each sequence is played Ascending and Descending through one octave.
  • There are twelve two note sequences for each key. All 12 keys are included.
  • There is no audio for these types of files.
  • Playing two or four note modal sequences in triplets or other odd rhythm groupings is a great way to disguise a sequence and also give it more interest.
  • Because these modal sequences are played ascending and descending through two octaves they are good files for an intermediate level student to use to learn a sequence.
  • There are 504 MP3s for this type of file. An example MP3 for the above score is found below:
  • There are also 504 midifiles for these PDFs so you can play them at any tempo.
  • You can use these études for ear training, sight reading, transcription or just to listen to ingrain the sound of the note in the key center. Remember, you can play these examples at any tempo, super slow or extremely fast, with the midifiles that accompany this course.
  • There are 1008 MP3s for this type of file. Keep in mind that there are also midifiles for each example so you can play any exercise at any tempo.
  • You can use these études for ear training, sight reading, transcription or just to listen to ingrain the sound of the note in the key center. Remember, you can play these examples at any tempo... super slow or extremely fast with the midifiles that accompany this course.

Two Note Modal Sequencing Individual Courses

If you prefer to order one of the 4 groups that comprise the Bundle you will find information on each below:

2 Note Modal Sequencing for All Instrumentalist Group 1 by Bruce Arnold for Muse Eek Publishing Company

Two Note Modal Sequencing Group 1

Each group consists of a number of related scales. Group 1 covers the modes of Major as seen below

    The modal sequencing courses have been set up to work in more than one way. That is because there are different levels of students working with these courses. But also as you learn a scale and move it through all keys, you become more familiar with it so you don't need to see the complete sequence written out. Each of the Modal Sequences therefore has the sequences written out in various ways to accommodate these situations.

    Keep these ideas in mind as you work through them:

    • Start the sequence at a tempo in which you are sure you are playing the correct notes.
    • Pay close attention to the physical way you are playing, to make sure it is the most ergonomic.
    • Say the note names or the degrees as you move through the scale until you feel it is second nature.
    • Try to sing the sequence over a drone or key center.
    • Use the "Long Line Rhythm" ideas as presented in the book to give a real boost to your speed.
    • Work with the ear training MP3s so that you can recognize the pattern when you hear it.

    The “Two Note Modal Sequencing” score and audio content

    Any seven note scale will have 6 intervals i.e. 2nds, 3rds, 4ths, 5ths, 6ths and 7ths and each interval has two permutations for a total of 12. Therefore each scale will be permutated through these 12 combination in all keys.

    There are five different types of files found in this course. Two of these five types have audio in the form of MP3s and midifiles. Five different types of files are included because students require different types of files depending on their musicianship. As a student gets to know a scale or a sequence better they usually can deduce the rest of the sequence without seeing it totally written out. Keep in mind that you will find slight differences in how the modal sequence is written in different examples. This is done to make the sequence resolve on the beat.

        Two Note Modal Sequencing Individual Courses

        If you prefer to order one of the 4 groups that comprise the Bundle book you will find information on each below:

        Modal Sequencing 2 Note Group 4 for all instrumentalist by Bruce Arnold for Muse Eek Publishing Company

        Two Note Modal Sequencing Group 4

        Each group consists of a number of related scales. Group 4 covers the modes of Harmonic Major which as seen below

          The modal sequencing courses have been set up to work in more than one way. That is because there are different levels of students working with these courses. But also as you learn a scale and move it through all keys, you become more familiar with it so you don't need to see the complete sequence written out. Each of the Modal Sequences therefore has the sequences written out in various ways to accommodate these situations.

          Keep these ideas in mind as you work through them:

          • Start the sequence at a tempo in which you are sure you are playing the correct notes.
          • Pay close attention to the physical way you are playing, to make sure it is the most ergonomic.
          • Say the note names or the degrees as you move through the scale until you feel it is second nature.
          • Try to sing the sequence over a drone or key center.
          • Use the "Long Line Rhythm" ideas as presented in the book to give a real boost to your speed.
          • Work with the ear training MP3s so that you can recognize the pattern when you hear it.

          The “Two Note Modal Sequencing” score and audio content

          Any seven note scale will have 6 intervals i.e. 2nds, 3rds, 4ths, 5ths, 6ths and 7ths and each interval has two permutations for a total of 12. Therefore each scale will be permutated through these 12 combination in all keys.

          There are five different types of files found in this course. Two of these five types have audio in the form of MP3s and midifiles. Five different types of files are included because students require different types of files depending on their musicianship. As a student gets to know a scale or a sequence better they usually can deduce the rest of the sequence without seeing it totally written out. Keep in mind that you will find slight differences in how the modal sequence is written in different examples. This is done to make the sequence resolve on the beat.

          Videos Included!

          Videos are included to help you apply modal sequencing and play them more musically.

          A Look at the Type of Files found in this Course

          There are many types of PDFs found in this course. This files allow to choose the best files based on your level.

          • These type of files are meant for an advanced student who only needs to work with the ascending version of a sequence and can deduce the rest of the notes.
          • There are no audio files with these sequences.
          • Each sequence is presented in all 12 keys.
          • These files present all the 2 Note Modal Sequences in one file which moves through all 12 keys.
          • There is no audio for these types of files.
          • Each sequence is played Ascending and Descending through one octave.
          • There are twelve two note sequences for each key. All 12 keys are included.
          • There is no audio for these types of files.
          • Playing two or four note modal sequences in triplets or other odd rhythm groupings is a great way to disguise a sequence and also give it more interest.
          • Because these modal sequences are played ascending and descending through two octaves they are good files for an intermediate level student to use to learn a sequence.
          • There are 504 MP3s for this type of file. An example MP3 for the above score is found below:
          • There are also 504 midifiles for these PDFs so you can play them at any tempo.
          • You can use these études for ear training, sight reading, transcription or just to listen to ingrain the sound of the note in the key center. Remember, you can play these examples at any tempo, super slow or extremely fast, with the midifiles that accompany this course.
          • There are 1008 MP3s for this type of file. Keep in mind that there are also midifiles for each example so you can play any exercise at any tempo.
          • You can use these études for ear training, sight reading, transcription or just to listen to ingrain the sound of the note in the key center. Remember, you can play these examples at any tempo... super slow or extremely fast with the midifiles that accompany this course.
