Mixolydian Savanna (Magic Carpet Tour)

All right we enter the savage savanna of Mixolydian! This is the second mode backing from Magic Carpet Tour – game.

Mixolydian has that major sound. But with the dominant 7th it kind of makes it sound much cooler. A backing track to really emphesis G mixolydian would be simple G7 chord. Here we got G5 and F5 chords in the backing to make it more musical. If you’re in quest for some licks to match the mode check out the game for groovy material.

Ocean of Aeolian (Magic Carpet Tour)

Here’s a much requested backing track to the Ocean of Aeolian from the Guitar Shred Show game Magic Carpet Tour.


Calm down with C-Major

This is solo backing from Creatures of the Midnight (“The way of the Exploding Guitar”). Very nice and mellow track to improvise over I’d say. C-major scale works beautifully over the whole progression.


Mode changes: F Lydian – Ab (G#) Lydian

Here’s a new mode change to play with. It’s a nice modulating tone, the changes between two lydian modes in different keys, F and A flat. This jam will get you flying!


Mode changes: B Aeolian – Bb Lydian

Here’s a very nice backing track for soulful solo improvisations. Thanks to the looping machine, one can enjoy jamming this for hours. And maybe some more. But before we begin let’s take a look at the actual modes we are using here.


Mode changes: A Mixolydian – G Dorian

Good! We’re flying high again with the Magic Carpet. This time we will expreriment with some mode changes. The loop starts with A mixolydian mode and then it changes into G dorian. And loop we go!


Mode changes: A Mixolydian – A Dorian

Now more mode changes! The loop starts with A mixolydian mode. Then it changes into A dorian. The only difference of these two modes is the third note, C versus C#. Mixolydian is major mode while dorian is a minor mode. And loop we go!
