It's funny, cause I always did B major then B Mixo, but I know I am missing something?

Why did you repost this? I moved your first to the "Scarlet Begonias" forum since this has nothing to do with GD equipment or Jerry's tone.

It's perfectly a B mixolydian - everything works exactly right within just that one mode.

Of course, you can throw in all of the arpeggios (they also fit into that same B mixolydian).

Here's a vid of us doing it... The solo starts at 3:08 - and it's all B mixolydian

All we have to decide is what to do with the time that is given us

B-mixolydian the whole time...

No room there for "B-major". That's quite an ugly clash with the A-chord that dictates the "flatted 7th" or mixolydian factor.

One thing I notice with Jerry in Scarlet (and in general) is that while he's definitely thinking in modes, he's playing off of chord shapes quite a bit. Scarlet is full of him moving thru little chord shapes and playing the notes of the shape and any other easily reached or hammered on/off or pulled-off notes that are in the mode. Sticking close to chord shapes helped Jerry sound melodic and not like a guy noodling in scales or modes. Big difference. By working off the chord shapes, the result naturally spells out the chords and sounds like pure melody, which it is. I see SO many Jerry pickers getting stuck moving around in scale positions without necessarily playing notes that spell out the chord happening at any given moment. That scale'y sound is very boring to the listener, and really isn't melodic. When on the B-chord, mostly (but not entirely) play the notes that make up the B chord. Same goes for all the chords in the song, play the notes of the chord at hand while still keeping B-mixolydian in mind when playing notes not in the chord.

B
... and it's just like any other day that's ever been...

Sorry for posting this in the wrong area, but I just realized that I actually do only play B mixo the whole time, and that I need to practice around the triad notes of each chord. Cool! Thanks everyone!
