Jazz Basics, Lydian Mode.
The Lydian scale is the fourth
step of C Major, the F Lydian.
[MUSIC]
So we're at, the notes are F, G, A, B.
C, D, E, F.
[MUSIC]
So as you can see,
this is like a major scale but
with a sharp four, sharp 11th.
[MUSIC]
And this is the note,
a B that is creating the tension.
[MUSIC]
So
when you're practicing, try to
[MUSIC]
put some emphasis on this note, the B,
to make it sound like a Lydian scale.
And like with the rest of the modes,
practice the different intervals.
Practice the the fourths, the thirds,
the fifths, the six, seven.
And
[MUSIC]
the chromatic lines.
[MUSIC]
And to practice the different arpeggios.
[MUSIC]
F major, G7,
A minor 7, B minor 7 flat 5.
C major, D minor 7, E minor 7,
and then back to F major 7.
And a triad that sounds really good
on this Lydian, F Lydian chord is G.
[MUSIC]
'Cause you got the B.
Which is.
[MUSIC]
A sharp four, you got the G,
which is the 9 also note,
creating tension.
And then you have the D, which is the 6th.
So.
[MUSIC]
Here's the F, you can hear.
[MUSIC]
And
maybe you can start with
playing an F triad.
[MUSIC]
F, A, and C.
[MUSIC]
And you can move up to this one.
[MUSIC]
Like that.
Play between the F, and
F triad and a G triad.
So let's try to play some F Lydian.
[MUSIC]
And you, now I'm just using this triads.
F,
[MUSIC] G.
[MUSIC]
F.
[MUSIC]
F.
[MUSIC]
G.
[MUSIC]
F.
[MUSIC]
Just a scale.
Longer lines.
[MUSIC]
Chromatic.
[MUSIC]
Arpeggios.
[MUSIC]
A minor, G7.
[MUSIC]
F minor 7, E minor 7.
D minor, C major, F major.
[MUSIC]
That's F Lydian.
[MUSIC]
