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

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

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

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

Chord ii is now Major,

Chord II now resolves nicely into chord Vb,

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