Re: Brelydian


The booklet CD’s tells they composed this tune in lydian mode. So isn’t it in G lydian instead of Dmajor?

Re: Brelydian

@Drouch there’s no lydian mode available when adding a tune. D’s key signature is the same, so I chose that one. There also no F#min. You’ll find many of those tunes are “in A”.

Ok thank you for this precision.
An idea to harmonise the tune?

A part
/ D / D / D / G-A /
/D / D / D / G /

B part
/ A / A / A / G /
/ A / A / G / D /

C part
/ A / A / A / G /
/ A / A / A / D /

?? Not sure of me
