Watch the Locrian Scale online guitar lesson by Tom Dempsey from Jazz Scales Handbook
In this lesson, we're going to take a look at our last mode of the major scale, the Locrian mode. This is a very interesting mode to consider as it is associated with the vii chord, the min7b5. Here we'll take a look at the two octave fingering in seventh position. We'll also relate it to the sound of the parent chord, and we'll begin to unlock the nuances of what makes this sound so interesting and cool!
