Hi, I m a beginner at theory and I only know basically 2 scales, namely the minor pentatonic and Aeolian. I dun really understand theory but I know that if a chord progression starts with say C major, Am, F G.... then I could play the scale, minor or aeolian, starting on the 5th fret with the first box of the scale. Which is a A minor pentatonic or aeolian. But when i tried learning the dorian scale, i realised that in the same chord progression, applying the same theory, I sounded funny starting the first box of the dorain scale on the 5th fret. Anyone can enlighten me please? Thanks.
