If I'm in B Lydian mode, then which key am I in? F sharp?

I know if I improvise on the C major scale, I'm in the key of C

If you're using B Lydian and it resolves on B, you are in the key of B Major.

(Right?)

key determines what is the root note of the scale. scale determines what is the structure of the note progression (aka W-H-W-W-H-W-W or something) and mode determines what part of the scale you are using therefore each mode has a different feel because of its different location on the fretboard and the sequencing of its notes. I think thats right.

so that would mean F# i think is correct

F sharp also works, cause lydian works over the 4th, and the 4th of F sharp major is B!

thread starting your right, you take the F sharp/g Flat scale and you go to the fourth note in the scale which is B, that is the B lydian mode

no, your in the key of B Lydian, but it does indeed resolve on a B. B Lydian is the 4th mode of the F# major scale. so you could play the same notes in a F# major scale but begin and end on that B and that would be Lydian (intervals are 1 2 3 #4 5 6 7).

Your in B. If you use the B lydian scale, you will have the same key signature as F# major though. You are not in F# though.
