Foo Fighters Style Mixolydian Progression

By Eric Hufschmid


Hey guys,

The mixolydian mode has been a standby for rock music because of the bluesy quality the flat 7th brings to the scale. In today’s lesson we’re going to look at a progression that uses the mixolydian mode in the style of the Foo Fighters. Remember, the mixolydian mode is very similar to the major scale, however the V chord becomes minor and the vii diminished chord becomes a bVII major chord. These are the main differences, so we like to emphasize these chords when playing in a mixolydian mode.

So enjoy the riff guys!


Practice this technique with the chord progression we showed you in this video. Take it slow and make sure to get it nice and smooth.
