[Demonstration] Welcome to guitarlessons.com in this lesson, I’m going to be explaining a little bit about the Phrygian Mode to you and how it’s made and how you could use it a little bit in your playing. So let’s start on the A-note right here and if you have A-major scale, let’s take that scale and use it to build our Phrygian scale. So to everyone, your A-note, let’s play that, and a regular major scale will have a major 2nd. The Phrygian scale will have a flatted 2nd, so the 2nd note of your scale is going to be the very next fret. The next note, the 3rd degree of the scale is going to be a flatted 3rd. So if your major scale has 1, 2, 3, your 3rd note of your Phrygian scale will be a flatted 3rd. So take that 3rd note of scale and bring it down one-half step so the first three notes of the scales will sound like this. The 4th note of the scale is the exact same as it would be in a major scale. It’s a regular 4th, the perfect 4th so the 5th is also a perfect 5th same as the regular major scale. The 6th is a flattened 6th so if on your major scale, you have 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6. You will lower that 6th note down a half a step as well. The 7th note of the scale is going to be flattened also, you’re going to have a flattened 7th instead of a major 7th so it’ll be a minor 7th. So on a major scale you’ll have this 7th, so you will move that down one-half step and finally, we’re going to finish off with the octave with another A. Some of the characteristic sounds you get when you play a Phrygian scale come from trilling between the 1st and the 2nd note and also trilling between the 5th and the 6th note. The example I was doing at the beginning of the lesson you’re hearing a lot of that, I was doing that on purpose just so you could get idea of what this sounds like. So you want to emphasize those notes when you’re playing the scale and also kind of emphasize the 3rd a little bit because that minor 3rd is what gives us our minor sounds. So take the scale, play it over as you could play of what a standard A-minor vamp. It also works pretty good over an A7 of A. So take those two examples and experiment with the scale and see if you like the sound of it and if you do, start using it in your stilos.
