Watch the Mixolydian Lick online guitar lesson by Tom Dempsey from Jazz Scales Handbook
Let's take a look at a musical idea that comes not only out of the Mixolydian mode, but also out of the sound of the great Wes Montgomery. This lick is another eight bar idea over a static dominant 7th chord. You'll hear in this lick the connection to the sound of the parent chord along with the Mixolydian definition throughout. It can't be emphasized enough how important this sound is to your overall palette of modal sounds.
