Hey Muris! I am beginning to study phrasing with scales outside the pentatonic scale. In the lesson you modulate from E lydian to Bb lydian. This freaked me out! How is this possible if they have completely different roots and almost no shared notes? Please help B4 I EXPLODE OF THEORY OVERLOAD! haha laugh.gif

Thank u

-sigma

Good question Sigma. smile.gif

Most of the time we are dealing with modulations
when keys/tonalities have one or few same shared chords.
That is not the case here however,
there is no shared chord but only one shared note,
but even that note doesn't have same name
in both keys,in E Lydian it's A# while in
Bb Lydian it's called Bb note.
So what I did was the showcase of two
most distanced tonalities and connection between them.
Most distanced because #4(or b5) is located right in the middle
of an octave so there is no interval with higher
distance from root note.

It might confuse you if you think of it as
a most common modulation because it ain't,
just as you said there is no shared chord etc.
That's why we have many different types of modulation,
smooth ones when we have few shared chords
and it goes really easy to hear and understand the modulation.
On the other hand some modulation are more like
straight jumps into new key without any connection.
But we did have one connection,the #4 note. smile.gif
