Watch the Half Step Down: Lydian Sound online guitar lesson by Kenny Wessel from Shades of Jazz
Lets trade lines together, practicing getting this Lydian sound by using minor pentatonics. We're playing over a 16 bar progression: Gmaj7#11, Bbmaj7#11, Cmaj7#11, to Ebmaj7#11 - 4 bars of each chord. We can use an F# blues scale, to an A blues scale, to a B blues scale, and finally to a D blues scale. I'll give some prompts for us to try the different techniques, I've laid out in this section.
