The EDCAG octaves sequence is shown for F natural in the diagram that follows:-

As always a more long term solution to fretboard navigation is to see scales 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:-

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

Once the individual box shapes have been assimilated all five shapes should be linked together and played in one continuous exercise (with the first shape - 6E4E1 - being repeated at the 12th fret).

The video shown to the right demonstrates the EDCAG octaves chain-linked sequence for the F lydian mode box shapes.
