    That's a really sweet tone there, very pretty melodies and classically dream Lydian. Love it!

    I know this is a very old thread but I just discovered it. I do so much agree about Satriani's "Flying In A Blue Dream" as being a definitive Lydian mode rock song.

    A while back on another guitar site a "Lydian Jam" occured in which a member posted a backing track, just a C vamp.

    I did two different takes, both completely improvised. The first take I did and meant it to be original, but had subconciously ripped off Satriani with a very "Flying In A Blue Dream" inspired theme. I really did not mean to reference Satch, but Lydian in the key of C kinda brings that melody to my mind's ear. It is such a great example of a nice dreamy Lydian melody. So I thought I had improvised this nice little theme that I intended to later devolop into an actual composition, but then it was pointed out that it very strongly resembled Satch's tune. ( Too bad the playing isn,t as good.... )

    Here is a link if you would like to hear it....

    After realizing that the above tune was not my own, I figured I would do another improve on the same backing track and post it, so below is the alternate take.

    I love the Lydian mode but thanx to Vai and Satch you really cannot play a Lydian tune without someone saying it sounds like one of them. I am also fond of Phrygian mode melodies too.

    I can be problematic composing progressions to use with modal melodies, but it is in these types of "problems" that the opportunity for creativity arises.

    I like the ideas, perhaps a bit more of a theme wouldn't go a miss though.

    I don't think it's that you stole Satch's tune so much as used a few of his licks. Nothing wrong with that!

    Nicely Lydian!

    Joey D, I do often work in a studio but usually my own stuff I just do at home, at least lately. These particular tracks were just the TOnelab direct to PC.....

    Hi Russ, Sounds like you've had time to practise a lot lately. Impressing playing. You have really getting hold of the very fast picking.

    The GMan!

    Thanks for the kind words. Malaysia a long way from the sights and sounds of Denmark street! Not sure about the practice, wish i could have more time, just decided not to avoid faster stuff anymore (used to try and be more melodic) now i think it's just fun eh?

    Would be good to have another London catch up soon, lemme know when you're coming over. Cheers.

    Another great tune in lydian.

    I just recently found this instrumental by pink floyd that explores almost exclusively the lydian mode. Simply majestic.

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wKMSnWznnMk

    This mode is for sure is the parent scale of all diatonic scales. When in songs the key centre goes to other corresponding modes I always had this slight dissappointment, a feeling of degradation. This is aural peace, no struggle to resolute, absolute unity.
