    Beato is so knowledgeable and presents with such enthusiasm he could run a segment on the Banana Splits or Milli Vanilli and I would think they were the greatest artists of all time.

    It's videos like this that first attracted me to this channel when I first discovered it, probably about five years ago. Tons of information, zero waffle. I love this - just clear, concise information, perfectly demonstrated and explained. There's not another youtuber I can think of who would cover this much information in just 7 minutes. Brilliant stuff.

    This is my favorite scale in all of music. Its so emotive, it can sound happy, sad, and down right evil or inspiring depending on your phrasings and chord choices. There is no better scale in all of music!!

    I miss your content like this with your compositions to demonstrate things. Also, this scale comes into Western music from the Arabic and Ottoman modal traditional (through Maghreb/Spain and Anatolia) where it's known as Maqam Hijaz/Hicaz You can raise the 6th degree sometimes which is nice giving a Rast flavor

    Probably my all-time favourite scale. It'll never not sound cool, no matter style of the music it can sound dark and evil like in metal or majestic as in Rick's film score-esque example. Incredibly versatile and just cool

    The speed that Rick applies what's in his mind to the fretboard is totally amazing. Especially with such complex chords and patterns. I've been playing guitar for about 40 years and when I see Rick effortlessly soloing & using scales like the ones in this video, it lets me know just how much I don't know about guitar and how much there still is to learn. Rick, you inspire me to always keep learning and never settle for 'good enough'. Thank you.

    A great example of this scale being used in a musical score is Oil by Jonny Greenwood. When I first heard this in There Will Be Blood it gave me chills.

    The first song we released was inspired by a couple of your videos (I went to the keyboard to write “something different” from the pop songs that all use the same chords which you are able to pick out so easily.) Now you’ve given me something new to work with. Looks like it’s time to write a song. 😊

    That was some great piano and guitar playing. You should record a solo album.
