2 typical locrian chords
b5 The Locrian mode has a m7 root chord. How so? Well, start on B and hop
Bm7b5 over every other interval in the mode and you get the notes of (B D F A) – it’s the same process with any mode’s root chord, in fact. Few songs
m7b5 have root chords (it just sounds so flippin’ weird!), but occasionally
m7b5 you’ll see a followed by a major chord a semitone higher – indicating that you may be in Locrian territory. Try jamming with these two chords to get your ear in and try the simpler B5dim chord too.
