Mixolydian Scale in 12 Keys
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
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 G major or G dominant chord.
Notable songs written in the Mixolydian mode would be:
Ramblin Man (Allman Brothers)
Sweet Home Alabama (Lynyrd Skynyd)
Sweet Child Of Mine (Guns and Roses)
In this video I will demonstrate the Mixolydian scale in 12 keys following the cycle of 4ths progression. As usual keep on playing and enjoy.
