A Jazz RESPONSE TO THE LYDIAN MODE TRANSPOSED TO C [As Parent Key]

The Lydian Mode transposed to C as the Parent Key for Composition and Improvisation

PLEASE WATCH VIDEO ABOVE FOR DETAILED ANALYSIS

Moving on from my last post on the Dorian Mode, I now look at how the Lydian Mode actually sounds.

Here’s how to transpose it to C as the parent key.

If F is a perfect 4th up from C:

Lydian, mode, in, C major, scale , music notation, example
How to Transpose the Lydian Mode to C as the Parent Key for Composition and Improvisation [Form F Lydian example]

Then what is C a perfect 4th up from: This would be G.

Lydian, mode, in, C major, scale , music notation, example
The Lydian Mode transposed to C as the Parent Key for Composition and Improvisation

So we have a G Major scale starting on the note C:

Lydian, mode, transposed, to C , as, Parent, key, jazz, improvisation lesson, music, notation, LCC, example
The Lydian Mode transposed to C as the Parent Key for Composition and Improvisation

You will hear straight away that the C Lydian has a Sharpened 4th and this is what gives it its distinctive flavour.

Lydian, mode, transposed, to C , as, Parent, key, jazz, improvisation lesson, music, notation, LCC, example
The Lydian Mode transposed to C as the Parent Key for Composition and Improvisation

Chord ii is now Major,

Lydian, mode, transposed, to C , as, Parent, key, jazz, improvisation lesson, music, notation, LCC, example

Chord II now resolves nicely into chord Vb,

Lydian, mode, transposed, to C , as, Parent, key, jazz, improvisation lesson, music, notation, LCC, example

Another beautiful sound is the sharpened 4th which now becomes F#m7b5

A JAZZ RESPONSE to the Modes of the MAJOR SCALE: DORIAN MODE: Part 1

yt_logo_rgb_light CLICK SUBSCRIBE!

Clifford Martin My response to the Modes of the major Scale: The Dorian Mode: How it Sounds

Today it’s just a short video as a response to the Modes of the Major Scale.

Many on the internet teach the modes as just learning the C major scale and starting on a different degree of that scale.

They NEVER show/play the Chords,Slash Chords, Harmony, Pentatonic’s, Arepggio’s, Superimpositions, Transpositions to Parent key, Sequences of Tonal Flavour, etc.

This is really bad and wrong teaching, and, for a beginning improviser or composer this is harmonically devastating when put into a “Real” situation with Pro Improvisers or Composition Expectations.

Without transposing the modes you have nothing with which to compose or improvise with. It’s no good just playing a C major scale over C major. That’s not what it is.

The video above has a brief look at what an improviser or composer should do or will do instinctively.

Eric Johnson’s Guitar PATTERNS: LEARN THE SECRET TO HIS STYLE!

In the first example we see a minor pentatonic pattern moving in groups of three notes that displaces the rhythm. This creates a unique fresh sound to the most used scale on the guitar. The rhythmic displacement also pushes the rhythm along. Also notice the use of the interval of a perfect 5th.

Eric Johnson 3 note Guitar Pattern lesson example:

Eric, Johnson, Guitar, Patterns, Example,
Eric Johnson 3 note pentatonic guitar patterns. How he does it Lesson

In the next example we can see how Eric Johnson uses 4 note guitar patterns. He also uses the interval of a perfect 4th which creates motivic movement.

Eric, Johnson, Guitar, Patterns, Example,

This next example shows how Eric Johnson takes the most overused cliche on the guitar [the minor pentatonic] and exploits the intervals to create a fresh and unique sound.

Eric Johnson intervallic manipulation:

Eric, Johnson, Guitar, Pentatonics, Example,

In this last example we can see how Eric Johnson employs the interval of a perfect 4th again, but, this time with arpeggios and inversion that creates a melodic sound to the ear. Again this moves us far away from the minor pentatonic cliches.

TRIBUTE TO JAZZ GUITAR VIRTUOSO LEGEND PAT MARTINO: JAZZ EXAMPLES

Example 1-Minor Topic. In this line we move via D Dorian and D melodic minor. Interest is created by employing some colourful chromaticism that also gives continuity to the line. These long fluid lines employ a double timed 16ths feel with an upbeat that creates/anticipates forward movement.

Example 2-This is an outside sounding line that exploits chromaticism with E whole tone and A altered scales.

Example 4- In this last example we delve into another one of Pat’s long fluid 16th jazz lines. This time there are two bars played over a static C7 chord. In this line we find, Mixolydian, Lydian Dominant, triad inversions, dyad/ 3rds and chromatic resolution.
