work on your ear training and transcribing. and just stay focused on the melodies and the message you want to get across.

Practice playing what you sing to practice using your ear.

Learn the major scale by scale degree ( I mean know where in each pattern you play the second or third... is). Now apply the rule to lower the seventh tone 1/2 step to become the scale starting on the original fourth note, now renumber every thing to match your new root and do it again. COntinue this process until you have played through all 12 keys.
Do the same thing by raising the fourth tone 1/2 step then the fifthe note becomes the new root, renumber and continue until you cycle through all 12 keys.

Do this within a span of 5 frets say open to fifth fret , then repeat from 2nd to 7th fret, 4th to 9th etc...

When you can do this in your sleep you can start lowering the third to make the melodic minor or raising the fifth to make the relatve harmonic or raise the root to make the dorian mode into the melodic minor.

Apply the above concept and the contents of the following thread

This is a graphical representation of the idea I was talking about.
The trick is to learn it in terms of the scale degrees and to understand how to alter the degrees to change keys.
The things to keep in mind here:
In the first diagram the blue notes are raised 4ths in this new scale the old 5th ( which I have labeled as 5 because I am using the old numbers which came from the middle diagram) becomes the new root so all the numbers would change accordingly.(Lydian from original root)
Similarly, in the third diagram the green notes are the lowered 7ths and the old 4th tone (labeled as 4) will become the new root.(Mixolydian from original root)
To use the 'Speaking in tongues ideas' you would move up or down more than 1 fifth which would be moving in thirds or seconds or some other non-perfect interval, and it would cause you to change more than 1 note. For instance raising 4 and 1, 1/2 step would result in the 2nd tone becoming the new root (Locrian mode from #1) or lowering 7 and 3, 1/2 step would result in b7 becoming the new root (Dorian mode from original root).

The other thing to keep in mind is that you should learn these ideas within a position, then move to other positions. I have only shown the whole octave as a reference.

EXCEL the swiss army knife of data manipulation!

I am surprised nobody gave me %$^& about that one!
The first gif said lowered 5th on the bottom!

Apparently the browser caches these images, because one of my machines shows the old one and the other shows the new one.
