    Ken,



    You may be hearing it as an octave instead of a Tonic. Test an octave lower if you need to. I like to test melody as close(in register) as possible to prove what I'm hearing....

    @Tom R

    Well yes I don't believe in exactly equivalent octaves all the time, and tone/timbre can be very important. The actual perceived connections could possibly be in a tighter range.

    It's been extremely bad weather here. Our own house hasn't flooded yet, but more rain is expected. I just want to post the newest charts while I can.

    @Motherlode

    That makes sense. The Top note holds a unique position, it's the highest note. So if a chord doesn't have the same Lydian Tonic as the CDR, then I need to at least voice it with a...

    Notice that this really ended up as two different questions. There's a clue in this.

    2)Blues scale is a "minor" pentatonic with a b5

    Awesome!

    Yeah the blue notes even resolve back when I compare each one to the next. And that Blue 4 is a hard one to get, but you set it up great!

    @Motherlode
    Nice Stuff!

    I'm hearing a Blue 3 and Blue 6 and then maybe a Blue 4 after that quick sweep. So that definitely proves that the melody can have it's own flavor!

    Yes some can be Mixolydian, but usually the blue b3 is needed to create a stronger Tonality. This means you at least have an 8 note system. To me that's the main core Blues framework.

    All of those b7s sound different to me. Especially if I get some resolution on the 2nd note in bold.

    That sounds like a good idea.

    I can hear a negative b7 that's simpler, doesn't bend, that's not bluesy to me. Maybe also try 1-- neg 4 --- neg b7 --->1. Does it sound similar?
