When jamming, guitarists are always challenged by the task of creating interesting, evolving rhythm parts behind a soloist.
In my experiences, I have found the study of modal chord patterns and structures to be tremendously useful in this regard and endlessly interesting.
I recently devoted a few columns to the study of building chord shapes, or “grips,” and patterns from modal structures, focusing on two of the most widely used minor modes, Dorian and Aeolian. This month, I’d like to turn your attention to one of the major modes, Mixolydian.
The Mixolydian mode is spelled: 1(root) 2 3 4 5 6 f7. It is essentially a major scale with the seventh degree lowered, or “flatted.”
