Rock Soloing B Mixolydian
In this amazing sixteen measure B mixolydian solo, Chris Zoupa gives us some more essential soloing techniques. hammer-ons, pull-offs, slides, many position shifts, arpeggios, mixolydian scale, minor pentatonic, major pentatonic, and even two finger tapping. We see all our favorite guitar players using all these techniques, and learning this soloing exercise will vastly improve your guitar playing regardless of your skill level. The tonality of this solo is B Mixolydian, That is a E major scale with the chord progression set up where B major is the home chord. Instead of the tonic note of the E major scale being the E note, its the DB. The E major scale is E F# G# A B C# D# E . The B Mixolydian scale is B C# D# E F# G# A B. The shift in the order of the intervals coupled with the chords being used gives the unique sound of the Mixolydian scale. Chris also gives us a small taste of the, HIROJOSHI SCALE which is much like the Aeolian mode without the 4th or 7th degree. the intervals are root, 2nd, b3, 5th, b6th. This scale has a Japanese/pentatonic feel of course.
