Hey y'all I wanted to post up some more stuff that hopefully might be enjoyable and/or give some ideas to someone else!!
So here is this really cool and beautiful Pat Metheny tune (also played on the album he did with Jaco which I imagine some of you know -- Bright Size Life) in which the main vamp is this Bm7-Gmaj7, combined with the occasional 3/4 measure of Em7-Cmaj7 and then back to Bm7-Gmaj7. Great example of a boatload of lydian sound. I jammed along with this a lot when I was learning what it was and how to hear it. I don't have any specific examples of like scales you should play but I think you can definitely just use the lydian scale and listen hard for that #4 on the Gmaj7 and trust your ears. Steve Swallow (bassist), Gary Burton and Pat are all using a bunch of vocabulary incorporating #4 it's everywhere.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jZ-6h40MskU
Perhaps more to the point for this forum, listen for the riff Branford plays @ 0:15 -- second note that Branford plays in that (riff opens on 5 of E major, first part of it is 5 #4 5 6 6 #4 3 2 1 7 2).https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SEE_R4VIkR4
Finally and maybe more important than the of the other stuff I say is this resource -- Ted Greene was an absolute monster player as well as teacher if you're not already familiar with him. And this particular page is called "Adding Spice to Major Scales". It makes use of a lot of the building blocks of vocabulary, specifically adapted for the guitar and with explanations.http://www.tedgreene.com/images/lessons ... -07-06.pdf
This is Ted's page of lessons on single-note soloing. It is indeed daunting, but keep in mind it is also a lifetime of work. I say that because when I first saw it I had that familiar sinking feeling in the pit of my stomach of "I'm never gonna be good enough to tackle any of this." And that is bullshit, so just wanted to mention that for anyone who might feel the same.http://www.tedgreene.com/teaching/singlenote.asp
