 Here are some examples of Scale and Mode Patterns that you can practice


To get a better understanding of what modes are, look at the first seven patterns shown here

In fact the first seven patterns are the notes of the C Major scale all over the neck of the guitar


Now if you just played the notes 1. 2. 3. 4. 5. 6. 7. 1. of the C Major scale consecutively, from C to C this is the first pattern of the Major scale known as the Ionian Mode


If you now just played the notes 2. 3. 4. 5. 6. 7. 1. 2.  of the C Major scale consecutively, from D to D this is the second pattern of the Major scale known as the Dorian Mode, in this example it would be called D Dorian, as the note of D is the second note of the C Major scale


If you played the notes 5. 6. 7. 1. 2. 3. 4. 5. of the C Major scale consecutively, from G to G, this is the fifth pattern of the Major scale known as the Mixolydian Mode


Study the example diagrams here and read everything

There is more on understanding modes on the next two pages here and the Mets Guitar 2000 program too


For all scale and mode patterns look at the scale and mode formula charts in this manual
