What is the MIXOLYDIAN MODE? Mixolydian Mode for Songwriters

Dec 09, 2021

What is the Mixolydian Mode? The short answer is that it is the "darkest" of the 3 modes that are based on a Major Tonic chord. 

If you want a song that's mostly Major in sound, but not quite so bright and happy sounding, Mixolydian might be the mode for you. 

In fact, a ton of rock music that's in a Major key is really in the mixolydian mode. 

To go from a Major key to the Mixolydian mode, all you have to do is flatten the 7th. In this video we talk about that and everything else you need to know about the Mixolydian mode, how to make it, and even talk a bit about when to use it.
