Dom7 Lydian

Dom7 Lydian

This scale is the fourth mode of the melodic minor scale and is called Lydian Dominant (b7).

Here are the ScaleTwister’s three Lydian scales for comparison.


Typical of the Lydian scale is the augmented IV degree (F#). With the additional diminished VII degree, the Dominant Lydian scale fits the major seventh chord because it contains no dissonant sounding note (4th note = F).
