The ‘Locrian’ mode may be considered a minor scale with the second and fifth scale degrees lowered a half step (1 fret). The Locrian mode may also be considered to be a scale beginning on the seventh scale degree of any Ionian, or major scale. Work that out on the guitar before you proceed. The Locrian mode has the formula 1, ♭2, ♭3, 4, ♭5, ♭6, ♭7. Its tonic chord is a diminished triad (Bdim in the Locrian mode of the diatonic scale corresponding to C major). The Locrian mode is the only mode in which the tonic triad is a diminished chord and considered dissonant. Try playing it on the piano and you will see what is meant by dissonant. Musicianship and practical application will be up to you. Good luck!
