January 11, 2012 | Cool sounds. Cool scale!
In January of 2010, we posted one of our favorite FFcP Scale exercises based on what we call the Lydian Dominant Scale. Don't let the terminology get you all worked up if you're not a music theory geek, because if you didn't know the esoteric function and context, you'd still think the sound was cool.
We'd expanded it into a bit of a finger twister, but that's all right. A little yoga stretching is good for your fretting hand!

Keep in mind, the same combination of notes can manifest itself in two other scales:
G Augmented 11th: G, A, B, C#, D, E, F G
C# Altered Scale: C#, D, E, F, G, A, B, C#
D Melodic Minor: D, E, F, G, A, B, C#, D
