Hi all,

Thought I'd share this advanced fusion style lick - based on the awesome Mixolydian b6 Mode!

TAB and Notation at www.quistorama.com/tabs




Mixolydian b6 Mode (aka the Hindu Scale) -


Eb F G Ab Bb C Db (Eb)


Mixolydian b6 is the 5th mode of the Melodic Minor Scale, so Eb Mixolydian b6 contains the same notes as the Ab Melodic Minor Scale.....




To see this scale in perspective:




Major Scale "DNA" - 1 2 3 4 5 6 7


Mixolydian Mode "DNA" - 1 2 3 4 5 6 b7


Mixolydian b6 "DNA" - 1 2 3 4 5 b6 b7




Hence the name!




Practice tips:


Experiment with your picking and legato. Try playing it with EVERY note picked. Then try adding as much legato as you can... then find the way you like the best!


Make sure to practice nice and slow at first. Try to always practise IN TIME. If you can tap your foot in time while you're playing you're definitely onto a good thing


And...... Make sure to choose a great fingering (see video for ideas) and then stick with it as you build up the speed.....




You can have a go at improvising with Mixolydian b6 on this E Mixolydian b6 Backing Track


Have fun!
