Modes: It's All Greek To Me!! Part 4

Lydian (IV): A major scale with the 4th raised a half step

F (the tonic)
G (a major 2nd)
A (a major 3rd)
B (an augmented 4th)
C (a perfect 5th)
D (a major 6th)
E (a major 7th)
F (upper-octave)

Good To Know!!! *The single tone that differentiates this scale from the major (Ionian), is its fourth degree, which its an augmented 4th above the tonic.*

  • Tonic triad: FM
  • Tonic seventh chord: FM7
  • Dominant triad: CM
  • Seventh chord on the dominant: CM7, a "major-seventh" chord type. By contrast, the "dominant seventh" type in this mode is found on scale-degree 2.
