Examples of the Pure Country Jam Tracks
These Jam Tracks are not simple boring loops. The tracks develop over time with obvious changes in the playing. Also, keep in mind that along with playing the seven modes of major with these tracks you can also play a major and minor pentatonic where indicated, as well as many other things.
Here are some short examples of the 7 modes. Remember each of these jam tracks can be found in all 12 keys in this course.
- E Major Jam Track: Use Major Scale or Major Pentatonic.
- D Dorian Jam Track: Use Dorian or Minor Pentatonic.
- G Phrygian Jam Track: Use Phrygian or Minor Pentatonic.
- Eb Lydian Jam Track: Use Lydian Scale or Major Pentatonic.
- Ab Mixolydian Jam Track: Use Mixolydian Scale or Major Pentatonic.
- Bb Aeolian Jam Track: Use Aeolian or Minor Pentatonic.
- Gb Locrian Jam Track: Use Locrian Scale
Please note that there could be many other scales superimposed over the jam tracks in this course. For instance you could superimpose a D Major Pentatonic Scale over the C Lydian example. That will sound great, but please think of the notes in the key of C not in the key of D. It’s best to think Degrees: D=2,E=3,F#=#4,A=6, B=7.

- What people are saying:
- I have found many of the Jam Tracks on Muse Eek to be too complicated and I’m glad to see Mr. Arnold listened to recommendations and created something dead simple. This are strong grooving tracks that make me want to jam. Thanks! F. Burns
- I’ve been looking for a collection like this for some time. I find the Locrian and Phrygian modes as country music tracks to be a riot. Why not? They sound great!A. Swift
- I own all the jam tracks put out by Mr. Arnold. These tracks brought out ear training problems I had and helped me learn how to fix them. For instance I was modulating in the Lydian tracks up and down a whole step but it was sporadic. Mr. Arnold suggested some exercises and I feel I’m really growing as a musician with these tracks G. Goldens
- Thanks these are going to be super useful. Have my eyes on Nashville and need something to kick me into gear. T. Anders.
