Mixolydian Rock

String Orchestra

Mixolydian Rock

Composed By

J. Cameron Law

This composition is an easy string orchestra piece written in the mixolydian mode. An optional easy drum set part can add to the hard-driving rock feel. The lowered leading tone (C natural) of the mixolydian mode helps create a “bluesey” sound. Performers should use vigorous, full bows and exaggerate the accents and crescendos. As a teaching tool, the basses should be encouraged to stay in third position as marked. A huge crescendo and energetic up-bow on the last note will bring the work to an exciting conclusion.
