Alright ^^

I can actually play all the 3 note per string patterns and I know the mode names for the major scale. What I dont know is... when someone says for example "Steve Vai plays lydian heres a lydian lick he plays" because I always thought that its still for instance G-major until you put it in context to a Chord-progression. I dont understand how you would make such a progression or how you would identify a lets say lydian lick. Of course playing the g major scale over a c major chord can be done but I dont belive that that is the whole trick. So If you could give me an example of a F# locrian progression or lick ( since we are doing g major now ^^ ) that would rly help me out.

I also have brief knowledge about colored tones ( like the b5 in locrian or b2/9 in phrygian ).

I feel like I have the resources, but I dont know how to use them yet.

Cheers Jan

It's easy to identify it's all depends from what note it starts!
If your lick will start from C and we are in G major you will get Lydian lick! Simple as that!
If you will harmonize the scale you will get this:
G maj7 - Ami7 - Bmi7 - Cmaj7 - D7 - Emi7 - F#half diminished
Same thing depends from what chord you will start you will get different sound!
This for example
F# mi7b5 - Emi7 - Bmi7
Will be a locrian chord progression!
I hope that makes sense!
