||Improvisation: Mixolydian Rock Groove
Have you ever worried about playing the "right" notes that you couldn't enjoy playing your solo?
The D Mixolydian Rock Groove featured in this lesson consists of a chord progression over which you'll improvise using the D Mixolydian scale. You'll find that as long as you're playing in D Mixolydian, you don't need to worry about switching up your notes over the chord changes, because the notes in the correct mode will sound good over all the chords. Instead you can focus on melodic ideas, articulation, technique, emotion/feel, dynamics, rhythm, tone, phrasing, space/rest, and listening.
