GUITAR IMPROVISATION With Lydian & Mixolydian

Improvising guitar melodies and solo licks for a potential tune which may end up as a song with lyrics or an instrumental. One kind of likes the way the Lydian mode plays off the Mixolydian mode over a droning B note which sound and tone can be manipulated with the modal sounds creating perhaps a kind of mysterious landscape. To be continued…

Guitar clips taken and edited from one long improvisational practice session in the dark depths of autumnal Somerset, UK.

SOUNDS OF THE MODES | Guitar Improvisations With Scales

‘Sounds of the modes’ was made to show the use of the modes at a simple and practical level in the hopes of breaking the mystique and any perceived complexity to those starting out using the modes in their own musical endevours.

A guitar improvisation and interpretation of the musical modes and running through the modes in sequence – Ionian (natural major), Dorian, Phrygian, Lydian, Mixolydian, Aeolian (natural minor) and Locrian.

The guitar scale of each mode is also shown on screen during the guitar improvisation. The guitar scales are arranged to a three-note-per-string arrangement which is popular among many guitar players.

Messy Guitar Improv Jam

Bit of a rough, ready and loose guitar improvisation jam. I haven’t jammed or improvised for a long time, so thought I’d let loose and blow the cobwebs away. I like improvising with the guitar even though my playing is a bit sloppy in the video. Improvisation is always a great way to find new ideas for songs and solos too! 🙂

Gear and stuff used: Charvel San Dimas guitar, Focusrite Scarlett Solo interface, BIAS FX 2 Elite guitar effects, EZ Drummer, EZ mix and Reaper. If you enjoyed this video, please like, share and subscribe! 🙂
