Music Theory for Guitar - Lydian Mode

Next page:
Previous page: Music Theory for Guitar - Mixolydian Mode Next page: Music Theory for Guitar - Aeolian mode (natural minor)

Lydian is the mode you get if you play a scale from the 4th note of a major scale. On a keyboard, it would be the scale you get when you play the white keys from F to f.

Lydian is a major scale, as it has a major third. The characterizing tone is an augmented fourth, which means that the fourth note is rised one half step. If you think of it as a scale for improvising, you can use it over a maj7 chord, particulary over the IV chord.

Again the primary chords are the root, and those that contain the characterizing note. These chords are the I, II and vii. If we are in F-lydian, that will be F, G and Em. But I also think of I - II - V as a lydian progression. In F-lydian that will be F - G -C.
