Synthetic Scales - Part XXIV
This week we are going to look at the modes derived from the Harmonic Lydian scale. The Harmonic Lydian scale is based on the Lydian Scale but with a b6th. It is very similar to last weeks’ Chromatic Hypolydian scale
, but with a b2.
This new scale is called the Minor Romani Inverse scale and is a Mode. It is the 2nd mode of the Harmonic Lydian scale.
If we continue this exercise (starting from each note) we can complete the following table for all the modes of the Harmonic Lydian scale.
So there you have it, all 7 modes of the Harmonic Lydian scale, and you can play them in any key, just start on the note you want and play the correct intervals!!
As always, have a go at playing the scales yourself, it always helps to get the sounds of each in your head and your fingers!!
Until next week, have fun!!
