From Howard Morgens "All about chord progressions" the following chord motions are given:
- I can progress to any other chord: However, it favours IV and V. In addition, it can act as n intermediate harmony between any two chords formulated from this list.
- ii (IIminor) gravitates towards V or VIIdim and sometimes IV
- iii usually moves to vi or IV. less so to V and ii.
- IV is usually follod by V or I and sometimes by vi,ii, and VIIdim.
- V most often goes to I and sometimes to IV or vi.
- vi an progress to ii, IV, or V.
- VIIdim usually resolves to I, but also goes to iii.
In my experience this works well for Ionian mode (I,ii,iii,IV,V,vi,VIIdim), but not work for Lydian mode (I,II,iii,#IVdim,V,vi,vii) and probably not for all other standard modes (Dorian, MIxolydian and Aeolian is not so bad). For me it is sometimes difficult to get back to the I in the Lydian mode, and it feels more natural to go back to the I in the similar Ionian mode. Some changes gives a very good Lydian mode (I-II-I, II,V,I), and others does not at all.
Does anybody have information about standard chord motions in Lydian mode like what Howard Morgen gives for the Ionian mode?
