I called this the cycle of cycles because notice that each spoke could be considered a cycle. Like this:
This is so big it becomes unwieldy. However, in its more micro, nano aspects, it is very simple. Memorize little chunks first. Then work on being able to make the mental shift from system to system.
Also, just play it! There is an album with each of the modes developed with a rhythm section so the student can practice playing over. This is as important as understanding these concepts of how it all fits together. Be able to play it! This is the fruition of all this effort to learn how it all works. Keep this bottom line in mind at all times!
