The mixolydian scale is the fifth mode of
the major scale.
So, myxolydian is often associated with
five chords or dominant seven chords.
The only difference note wise
between the myxolydian major scale
is we're going to have a flat seventh.
So in A flat let's play A flat myxolidian,
it's gonna be just a major
scale from the beginning.
And now, when we get to the seventh scale
degree, it'll be a G flat, a flat seven.
I want you to explore this
scale through our normal routine
with the metronome and drone,
from whole notes to sixteenth notes.
The arpeggio associated
with this scale has a major
and then the flat seventh there.
I'm going to demonstrate
to you the scale, and the arpeggio
in quarter notes in two octaves.
Three, four.
