Hi all

Im a little confused about modes. I understand that for each mode in a key the notes are the same but start at a different position. But I dont understand how to tell which mode I am playing in! If the notes are the same for a C Ionian and a D dorian, how do I know which mode a lick is in? I see these lessons on modes and they play them in different positions on the fretboard and thats where I'm a little confused. huh.gif

Any help would be greatly appreciated! Thanks!

Ok so I just put emphasis on different notes? So if I'm playing in the key of G, and I play an A minor, I can play A dorian over that and use A as a root note? And same for G major, I can play G Ionian and use G as the root note? Hope I understand that correctly! Starting to slowly make sense...
