Improvising

Stretch. Breathe. Walk about and look around at the trees, the clouds, the grass, flowers and people.

Multi-Position

Improvising between two mode positions

The above melody uses the G Mixolydian Mode played at 3rd position, that is, the tonic note is there on the 3rd fret, E string.

Three notes in the second bar are played higher on the fretboard, using the top E string using the 7th and 10th fret.

It's a recommendable practice to try including a few notes in a melody that are higher than where the mode is played for most of the melody.
