  • Greetings from Granada (Andalucia, Spain)!

    This is an experiment using Lydian b7 scale. I composed a song to play rhythm and solos with this rare scale. As the name indicates it is a lydian scale with a lowered seventh. The Lydian b7 is the fourth mode of the melodic minor scale, and is great for dominant 7th chords as an alternative to mixolydian.

    Music Style:
    Hard Rock

    Tonality & Chords:
    G (Lydian b7)
    D (Pentatonic minor)

    Techniques:
    bending, legato, chords, octaves

    Sound:
    I used a Gibson LP Gold with a little of delay and overdrive.

    Tuning:
    Normal tunnig: E,A,D,G,B,E

    Tempo:
    142bpm (Slow parts at 71 bpm)
