  • Hi Friends! Today we continue working with the modes harmonized with triads. Now it’s time for the Mixolydian mode.

    Like I always say, the most important thing is to learn the arpeggio first. In this case we have to learn the dominant 7th arpeggio well and then you have to add the major second, perfect fourth and major sixth.

    If we play the major scale starting at the fifth note of the scale and we finishing at the same note, we have the mixolydian mode. The next step is harmonizing the notes of the arpeggio with triads! And you have to do this work in all the neck.

    The Mixolydian mode is composed by the root, major second, major third, perfect fourth, perfect fifth, major sixth and minor seventh.

    We study the different boxes of this scale like in the other lessons. First starting in the fifth string of the guitar in note C (C7 chord), then in the sixth string in note C too, now in sixth string again but now the box is to the front, then in fourth string, and the last one in fifth string to the back (to the bass direction of the neck).

    Here I harmonize any note of the arpeggio with triads. This means that now you can play a melody harmonize at the same time!

    I recommend practicing any box very well and pay attention to any notes!

    You can do this work in different keys for better results.

    I hope you enjoy this lesson!
