I like to use scale patterns related to the major scale. For example, I count the minor scale as 6,7,1, etc, vice 1,2b,3.
Has anybody seen a chart like this for modes? Ex, Dorian would start 3,4,5...
DO IT YOURSELF! It's easy, and you will learn a lot more than from someone telling you.It'll save me some time from doing it myself.
See the modes as entities within themselves.
Right off the bat.
That way, they won't be desperately scrambling to be seen (and heard) as maj scales again.
I'm just not wanting to learn 10 patterns that start with 1 and try to keep them straight in my head.
It is very labor intensive. I spent about a month just on dorian with my guitar teacher and am now going to mixolydian (for ii-V-I play). Will go over Ionian next, but not just the 'pattern', but the intervals and where they fall starting from every root note on the neck.
That's fine. Just remember that mode patterns are not mode sounds, necessarily.I just want to practice new scales off of the painfully learned major pattern.
After getting the major pattern down, it was just so much easier to start at 6 for the minor scale...
I understand it's musically better to consider the Mode as being in the key of the first note rather than a derivative of C.
I find it easier to apply patterns to the fretboard rarther than notes. The notes are coming, but not as easily as patterns at this time.
Well, ideally the latter. You can derive it either way, but you should hear it the second way.Is Lydian the major scale starting on the 4th note, or is it the major scale with a #4?
You must learn to see it both ways, Grasshoper....
So where you come up with fingerings doesn't matter. Use offsets of a major scale or learn fingering for each. What is important is learning the sound and then practice making lines using those sounds. Now the modes have value.
