Hi Professor, have a quick question for you. I am starting to learn modes on the guitar and I'm pretty sure I know the answer to this but want to clarify! If I know for example the Dorian mode in the key of C, if I then follow up and say I do the Dorian mode in the key of G is it still the same shape as the Dorian mode in C but just in a different place on the neck?

If you don't mind me answering, yes that is correct BUT I wouldn't get too hung up on shapes and patterns, after all if you know your major scale patterns you know your 'mode patterns too' I would focus more on the interval changes between the major scale and the mode. ie Lydian is a major scale with a #4.

Hey

Yes that would be correct. If you know a fingering for D Dorian, the Dorian shape/mode in the key of C major, then you just play that same shape starting from the note A, so A Dorian, to transpose that shape into the key of G major. That's it!

Posterboy thank you for the insight don't mind at all that you helped very kind of you smile.gif Thank you as well Professor. I actually more so than memorising shapes want to be able to hear and to recognise what the differences are between the modes and put that to use as far as jamming with other musicians or with backing tracks smile.gif
