Harmonizing a Melody in A Mixolydian
The Mixolydian scale or Mode is derived from the Major scale starting on or emphasizing the fifth tone. For example a C major scale starting on or emphasizing the note G would be considered a G Mixolydian scale. Another way of interpreting the Mixolydian mode can be playing a Major scale with the 7th tone lowered by a half step.
G A B C D E F# G = G major scale G A B C D E F G = G mixolydian scale or C D E F G A B C C major scale G A B C D E F G G mixolydian mode
The Mixolydian mode would usually be accompanied by a Major or Dominant chord.
In this video I will create a simple melody line in A Mixolydian and harmonize that melody line using the third, fourth, fifth, and sixth degree of the scale. Playing the harmony above or higher than the melody line.
As usual keep on playing and enjoy.
