Continuing our discussion about the Lydian mode, let’s stay in the key of E Lydian.

A simple trick to making the Lydian sound come out is skip the 2nd note of the mode,
and just play around with the root, 3rd, fourth, and fifth notes of the mode… With special
focus on the 4th note. (Bb)

Then , after establishing this sound, you can change up the sound
by hitting that second degree of the mode. (F#)

That’s the basic idea.
