Jazz Advanced, Lydian Flat 7.
It's time for
the fourth step of G melodic minor.
And the fourth step would be starting on.
On the C.
And if you're using the notes
from the G melodic minor scale.
Stacking them in thirds.
Like we'd done before.
Then you get this.
C, E, G, B flat.
The C7 chord.
And then you,
you play the G melodic minor scale
starting from C going up to C.
You will get these notes.
C, D.
F sharp.
G, A, B flat, C.
The proper name for this scale would be.
C Lydian flat 7.
Lydian dominant.
It's like mixolydian scale with a,
a sharp 4, or flat 5.
Or like a Lydian scale with a dominant 7.
And yeah.
What about this scale?
You can
you can practice intervals.
Like for instance, we used the fifths on
the other mode, on the previous modes.
So let's try some instanced
thirds right here.
Or, no, why don't we do fourths.
Like this, starting on C.
'Cause there's no F, there's a F sharp.
We will get to,
augmented fourth here at first interval.
C, F sharp, second would be D G.
Next one would be.
E, A.
And the next one would be F sharp, B flat.
And this one is like
a major 3rd because we have the F sharp.
And we have.
And the B flat.
And then we have A, G, and C.
Then we have A, and D.
And a B flat then an E.
Then have C,
and F sharp once again.
Then we have D,
and G.
We have a E, an A, and
we have sharp and B flat.
And then G and C if you gonna,
continue further out, further up.
Like that.
That's pretty cool.
All right, so let's try to improvise,
and also to find some nice triads in here.
Like I, I showed you on,
on the first mode.
Like, on G melodic minor
scale that you can start on
any of the notes in the scale and
find a useful triad.
And then some of them.
Work really well.
That you can stay on them for a while.
Some of them are just
good as passing triads.
Like, going, 'cause they might contain
some avoid notes that just sound good
between one note leading to, to another.
Now we can start from C, C7, C,
And then
diminished triad, from E.
Diminished triad for F sharp.
G minor, A minor
B flat augmented triad, and
then back to C.
As you can hear here.
This works fine,
and you can also add
the 7th to each each triad.
C7, D7, E minor 7 flat 5,
F sharp minor 7 flat 5.
G minor major 7.
A-minor 7.
B flat major 7 augmented.
Major 7 sharp 5.
Like that.
So let's improvise using
the Lydian flat 7 scale.
Find the melodic motif.
Develop it.
And some of these.
The ones I showed you.
