Watch the D Lydian online guitar lesson by Robbie Calvo from Power Concepts
In this Power Concepts lesson, you'll be applying the D major pentatonic scale over a D Lydian chord progression. A D Lydian progression is created by using chords derived from the A major scale, however the progression will resolve to the IV major chord, D Major.
The D major pentatonic scale is also derived from the A major scale and contains all of the Sweet Notes found in the D major chord…which is going to make applying this Lydian Power Concept so sweet and easy. You'll also have the 2 and 6 as color tones to use in your lines and licks, so if any Lydian progression you play over contains the 2 and 6 in the resolution tonal center chord, those will also be Sweet Notes too.
D major pentatonic contains I - 2 - 3 - 5 - 6. The 1 - 3 - 5 are your Sweet Notes, so target those when resolving your phrases over the tonal center.
Check out the video and sample solo to hear this Power Concept in action, then apply your own Major Pentatonic licks over the cool Lydian jam track.
