THE MIXOLYDIAN MODE = also known as “the Jerry Garcia scale”.
The Mixolydian Mode, like Dorian, is another really cool and approachable mode. It works great as a scale over dominant chords and can really change the vibe of a blues song. You can also find it all over the place in jazz, funk, and rock music. Without the Mixolydian Mode we wouldn’t have great tunes like “Fughetta super: Dies sind die heilgen zehn Gebot”, a song that strangers are constantly asking me to play.
