Mixolydian Mode Scale

Here is a lesson from a longtime supporter Andrew Koblick of Amazing Guitar.

Amazing Guitar Just released an Update
to thier Flagship Product Amazing Guitar:

http://www.guitar5day.com/pj-ag20.html

Also recently has released, to much positive acclaim
the Ultimate Blues Primer: http://www.guitar5day.com/pj-ubp.html


Here is another Free Guitar Lesson
The Mixolydian mode which is made up of 7 notes:


C D E F G A Bb C


C mixolydian is just like C major with 7th note Flat. C major has a B and
C mixolydian has a Bb.


The Mixolydian Mode is derived from playing the 5th note of a major scale
up to the 4th note.


Look at the key of F major (2 octaves):

F G A Bb C D E F G A Bb C D E F
1 2 3 4 5 6 7 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 1


Now we go from #5 to #4:
C D E F G A Bb C

The chords that can be contructed from the Mixolydian mode are 7th 9th
11th 13th.


Another Progression would be:
C major / D minor/ F Major / C 7 / G minor / C Major or C7

This progression is in the Key of F but
centers around the C chord and has a mixolydian feel.



Here is a tablature of the scale:

E||--------------------------|--------------------3----|


B||--------------------------|-----------3--5--6-------|


G||--------------------------|--2--3--5----------------|


D||------------------2--3--5--|------------------------|


A||-----------3--5----------|-------------------------|


E||--3--5--6-----------------|-------------------------|


The C Mixolydian scale can be played in several
other places across the neck of the guitar.
