  • Welcome to the fifth lesson of the Modal pentatonic series. In the previous lessons we discussed how we could use the pentatonic formula (Root, 3rd, 4th, 5th and 7th) and apply it to the modes. Today we will use that concept over an A Lydian scale and combine that pentatonic scale with the full Lydian scale to create a melodic solo.

    The Lydian pentatonic will include the following notes:


    Maj 3rd

    Augmented 4th


    Major 7th

    Memorize the scales and work in tempo with precision. Once you are comfortable with the licks, try to write your own using the provided scales.

    Have fun!
