Watch the Lydian Augmented Lick online guitar lesson by Tom Dempsey from Jazz Scales Handbook
The Lydian Augmented scale is a very interesting sound and a challenging one to start to incorporate in musical ideas.
In this lesson, I'm going to lay out a Lydian Augmented idea for you to sink your teeth and ears into. This is coming out of C Lydian Augmented. While the idea itself is presented over a CMaj7#5 chord the applications of this idea are congruent with applications we discussed in the previous lesson. Learn it as written, but then analyze it over other chords and see what new ideas you can derive from this sound.
