I want to credit instructor David Wallimann and his video on modes. I knew absolutely nothing about them nor even their names. I have always played by ear. Now, I have their names memorized and am getting closer to memorizing each form by heart. It's not quite as chaotic as I thought!

One giant question though, where after this should I direct my path to, to the next step of theory? What are all the applications to these modes and how do I go about using them within my composition/playing? If there is already a topic post on this, I apologize. Tis' been over half a decade since I've been on GMC and I am thrilled to be back! biggrin.gif

Hi Kyle, sorry for the delay, I was on vacation until today.

About your question, it has a very wide answer and you have to go slowly if you really want to get the more of these concepts. Modes are basically scales, so you need to experiment with them in order to get how each one sounds, what's its characteristic sound to the apply it in your own playing.

At first you can explore more these scales HERE and dedicate some time to learn and understand the concepts behind these lessons:

And off course, ask me all the questions that appear.
