The Mixolydian Mode is based on the fifth note of the major scale. In the key of G, the 5th note is D. D is a perfect 5th of G, so it sounds very good. This is a very popular mode for many rock players. To play the D Mixolydian Mode, start with the first note at the 6th string 10th fret. Remember, we are still in the key of G.
