Watch the Gettin' Mixo online guitar lesson by Angus Clark from 50 Radio Rock Licks You MUST Know

The mixolydian mode is the major scale with a b7. Here, we're in D mixolydian, which is D E F# G A B C. I'm using hammers and slurs to amp up the fluid sound and exploit the somewhat exotic sound that this scale gets you. It's that sound you hear on Hendrix's "Third Stone From the Sun" and the Beatles' "Norwegian Wood".
