A short guitar improvisation over a C MIXOLYDIAN VAMP, after you can practice over the backing track.
C Mixolydian Guitar Backing Track
Here is the fifth video of a long serie about musical modes.
I have always been passionate about music and a few weeks ago I had fun to identify all musical modes and scales used in the world.
There are about a hundred.
I had fun doing backing track with modals vamp to practice all this material.
I did everything in C to really hear the difference between each.
A friend advised me to make videos to share the results of my research with others it might interest.
It's very used in modern music: jazz, blues,rock,funk etc....
- major third
- major sixt
- seventh ( in france we say minor seventh )
You can use this mode over a C7, C79 , C7sus4,Bb/C chords,
a C MIXOLYDIAN vamp....
In my improvisation i try to play in a " modal approach ".
I use chromatisms and embroidery etc...
It is interesting to know that the the idea of a MIXOLYDIAN mode comes from the theory of the music of ancient Greece. The Mixolydian mode ancient Greece was invented by Sappho , the poetess and musician in the seventh century before JC . However, the Mixolydian mode ancient Greece is very different from the modern interpretation of the mode.
Here a very interesting article ( but in french )https://fr.wikipedia.org/wi...
I hope you'll enjoy this video and you'll have fun practicing with. :-)
THE BACKING TRACK:
It's a funky backing track.
I play all instruments on the backing track and i've programed the drums.
I tried to create a backing track with a bass riff,a funky guitar, a keyboard ( Bb/C,C79) to bring out the color of the mode.
I hope that this exercise will help you to better hear the MIXOLYDIAN mode.
I think it is very difficult to describe a color with words:
For example, try to describe the color red with words ...
very difficult ... it's better to show ...
It is the same thing with the musical modes
