Watch the F# Locrian Progression online guitar lesson by Robbie Calvo from The Modal Alchemist

An F# Locrian chord progression is built from chords found in the G major scale and has a resolution point, tonal center of the VII chord, F# minor 7(b5).

The first thing you'll notice about a Locrian progression is the fact that it never really sounds resolved and that's because the minor 7 (b5) chord doesn't really function as a resolution point. Its function in a progression is to add tension and pull towards the I chord. However, our Locrian modal progression exists regardless of whether it sounds settled and consonant or not.

I've tried to add some consonance to the progression by playing very sweet sounding chords after the F# minor 7(b5) to release the tension at those points.
