Lydian Mode-A5 feedback loop-May 12, 2010
In this video I am simply just jamming over an A5 feedback loop that I created using a Digitech looper pedals and many layers of A notes and E notes feeding back. "A lydian" is the same as the "E major scale" so therefore any notes of the E major scale can be used all over the fingerboard for improvising.

"A dorian" is the second mode of the "G major scale" so therefore any notes of the G major scale can be used all over the fingerboard for improvising. Note the usage of both the Gmaj7(2nd fret) and Cmaj7(7th fret) arpeggios starting at 0:57. You may want to check out this page from my website where I give "lesson templates" in various keys.

7 String Metal Riff-Created Aug 2, 2007-Power Chords in "A dorian"

The power chords that are "diatonic" to "A dorian" are: A5 B5 C5 D5 E5 G5; therefore you could use the A dorian scale(A B C D E F# G) to improvise over this progression. This would make an excellent jam track for shredding since the tempo is not too fast. Also consider using Am pentatonic and Em pentatonic scales for improvising over this progression since both of those scale are contained within the A dorian scale. Bm pentatonic would also be an interesting choice! Keep on Jamming!
