Lydian Mode – The Fourth Position of the Major Scale

Lydian Mode Fretboard DiagramThe Lydian Mode is based on the fourth note of the major scale. In the key of G, this 4th note would be C. This is one of the modes that I mentioned shares the same pattern as a different mode. If you look closely, you’ll notice that the pattern is the same as that of the Phrygian Mode. In the key of G, the pattern is in the same exact position as the pattern of the Phrygian Mode, the only difference is that you begin playing on the C note. Here, I left the B out but it could very well still be there, only you would skip over it and start playing the C. Start this pattern with the first note on the 6th string 8th fret.
