Watch the Half Step Down: Lydian Sound online guitar lesson by Kenny Wessel from Shades of Jazz
In this segment, I will demonstrate playing the minor pentatonic scales used as a lydian sound over a chord progression. I will try to play changes using the techniques we've just studied. The progression I'm going to use is: G Maj7 #11 / Bb Maj7 #11 /
C Maj7 #11 / Eb Maj7 #11, each chord for played for 4 bars. So we have a 16-bar progression playing over 4 parallel Maj7#11 chords. The scales we are going to use in this example are: F# minor pentatonic (over GMaj7 #11), A minor pentatonic (over BbMaj7 #11), B minor pentatonic (over CMaj7 #11) and D minor pentatonic (over EbMaj7 #11). Here goes.
