  • The Lydian Mode





    The Lydian Mode is the fourth Mode of the Major scale and it contains 7 notes:

    R, 2, 3, #4, P5, 6, 7

    In the C Lydian Mode the notes are:

    C, D, E, F#, G, A, B, C

    Below I have listed all of the one and two octave positions that I use for playing the Lydian mode. Some start with the 1st finger on your frethand whereas others start with the 2nd finger and the final examples start with your 3rd and 4th fingers. Feel free to play around with them and experiment with fingering of your own.

    Lydian Mode One Octave  



    Two Octave Positions

    Make sure that you practice the Lydian Mode in all 12 keys on the Guitar!
