You’ll enjoy riffing out against Jam Track Eight’s hard rock feel in the “Mixolydian” mode. This modes sound is the back-drop of lesson eight’s riff, with the track built from off of one of guitar’s most infamous rock playing positions, the low sixth string open “E.”
Jam track eight uses Rock’s dominant tonality established within a hard-edge setting of thick /crunchy over-driven guitar. With that sound, the track uses one of Rock musics most loved scales, the scale of “E Mixolydian.”
What’s unique about Mixolydian is how while it has a tonality of Major, it leans slightly minor due to its “Minor 7th” scale degree of “D” natural.
When it comes to performing lines and phrases over the chord changes of jam-track eight, the “E Mixolydian” is the primary scale choice.
Along with the “E Mixolydian” mode. Also try using the, “E Minor Pentatonic Scale,” and the “D Major Pentatonic Scale.” Along with those try using the arpeggios of, “D Major Triad,” and the “B Minor 7” arpeggio.
