A Locrian mode
This page presents the A Locrian mode for the guitar. The mode is shown in the pattern that finds the root note (A) located on the 6th and 1st strings. The A Lorcrian mode for guitar is based on the 7th tone of the respective parent scale. The Major scale that has A as the 7th tone in the Bflat Major scale, and therefore the B♭ Major scale is the parent scale for A Locrian. The notes of the A Lorcrian mode are the same notes found in the parent scale. These notes are A, B♭, C, D, E♭, F, and G. Please remember to drive away from and back to the A tone to achieve the proper tone for the A Locrian mode.
The fretboard diagram has the notes of the A Major scale that are not part of the A Lorcrian mode faded for reference purposes.
