  • Hi GMC! This is the third lesson of the Dominant Series. Here we are going to explore the sound of the different phrygian modes. I've made phrases in A phrygian major, A phrygian and A phrygian natural 6 to play over the A7. Like in the previous lessons I play one scale over the A7 then comes the D7 chord (where I play D mixolydian) and when the A7 comes again I play the other scale that we are learning here and so on.

    The progression is: A7-D7

    A phrygian major (D harmonic minor) - A -Bb -C# -D -E -F -G -A (this scale add the tensions: b9-b13)*

    A phrygian (F major) – A -Bb -C -D -E -F -G -A (this scale add the tensions: b9-#9-b13)*

    A phrygian natural 6 (G melodic minor) – A -Bb -C -D -E -F# -G -A (this scale add the tensions: b9-#9)*

    *I explain the tensions comparing to the A mixolydian (the scale where the A7 comes from).
