Watch the E Mixolydian online guitar lesson by Robbie Calvo from Power Concepts
In this Power Concepts lesson, you'll be applying the E major pentatonic scale over an E Mixolydian chord progression. An E Mixolydian progression is created by using chords derived from the A major scale, however the progression will resolve to the V major chord, E major or E7.
The E major pentatonic scale is also derived from the A major scale and contains all of the Sweet Notes found in the E major chord, which is going to make applying this Mixolydian 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 any Mixolydian progression you play over containing the 2 and 6 in the resolution tonal center chord. An E6 Or E6/9 or E9 chord for example will be Sweet Notes too.
E 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.
