F lydian mode box shapes

In BLOGoZON No.41 the box shapes for the F LYDIAN MODE were presented using the EDCAG octaves methodology.

In this weeks BLOGoZON the box shapes for the F lydian mode are revisited but this time the undelying
3-note chord/arpeggio is presented i.e. F major.

The easiest example of the lydian mode is rooted on F natural - as it is really the C major scale re-arranged so that it starts with the fourth note (F) rather than the first (C).

Hence the EDCAG octaves sequence is shown for E natural in the diagram that follows:-

EDCAG octaves F natural

The diagrams that follows show all of the F lydian mode notes plotted over the 6-string guitar's fretboard in both the Guitar Pro and EDCAG octaves styles:-

As always a more long term solution to fretboard navigation is to see scales/arpeggios as INTERVAL shapes rather than note names - as these are universal to all scales, arpeggios and chords rather than specific to one particular root note - with this in mind the intervals for the F lydian mode are detailed below in the
EDCAG octaves manner:-

All scales and modes have an underlying triad - 3 note chord - that defines their tonality.

In the case of the F lydian mode this is the F major arpeggio - hence the notes for a F major arpeggio

are presented in both the Guitar Pro and CAGED octaves styles:-

Similarly the intervals forming a F major arpeggio are shown next:-

The tables and tabbed panels below detail all five box shapes for the F lydian mode and the
F major arpeggio in the EDCAG octaves style.
