You need to fix up your post as I really don't have a good grasp of what you're trying to say/ask.

That being said, I'll give it a shot:

What do you know about the major scale?

Im sorry, but I dont understand what ur asking? Playing my own stuff was always the point for me. I think after modes I bought tabs. All the stuff I wanted to know how they knew type of thing. Of course, that was before I had my ears on. It helped turn them on though. Forgive me if im off base a little. Just guessing.

[ 1st Verse ]
Its close to midnight,
Something evils lurking in the dark
Under the moonlight,
You see a sight that almost stops your heart
You try to scream,
But terror take the sound before you make it
You start to freeze,
As horror looks you right between your eyes
Youre paralysed

[ Chorus ]
Cause this is thriller, thriller night
And no ones gonna save you from the beast about to strike
You know its thriller, thriller night
Youre fighting for your life, inside of
Killer, thriller, tonight


[ 2nd Verse ]
You hear the door slam,
And realize theres nowhere left to run
You feel the cold hand,
And wonder if you ever see the sun
You close your eyes,
And hope that this is just imagination, girl
But all the while, you hear a creature creepin up behind
Youre out of time


[ Chorus ]
Cause this is thriller, thriller night
There aint no second chance to against the thing with the forty eyes, girl
Thriller, thriller night
Youre fighting for your life, inside of killer, thriller, tonight

[ Bridge: ]
Night creatures calling, the dead start to walk in their masquerade
Theres no escaping the jaws of the alien this time
(Theyre open wide)
This is the end of your life

[ 3rd Verse ]
Theyre out to get you
Theres demons closing in on every sight
They will possess you,
Unless you change that number on your dial
Now is the time,
For you and I to cuddle close together, yeah
All through the night, Ill save you from the terror on the screen
Ill make you see

[ Chorus ]
That this is thriller, thriller night
Cause I can thrill you more than any ghost would ever dare try
Thriller, thriller night
So let me hold you tight and share a
Killer, thriller, killer, thriller, here tonight

[ Chorus ]
Cause this is thriller, thriller night
Girl, I can thrill you more than any ghost would ever dare try
Thriller, thriller night
So let me hold you tight and share a
Killer, thriller-


[ Rap Performed By Vincent Price ]
Darkness falls across the land
The midnight hour is close at hand
Creatures crawling in search of blood
To terrorize yours neighbourhood
And whosoever shall be found
Without the soul for "getting down"
Must stand and face the hounds of hell
And rot inside a corpses shell
The foulest stench is in the air
The funk of forty thousand years
And grisly ghouls from every tomb
Are closing in to seal your doom
And though you fight to stay alive, your body starts to shiver
For no mere mortal can resist
The evil of the thriller.
(Maniacal laughter)

IT'S A THRILLER
THRILLER
NIGHT

You are not ready to deal with modes. Start with intervals, the major and minor scales, and chords. Modes are beyond you're grasp right now.

The link in my sig is a good start. Seriously, you're trying to do a triathlon before you can walk.
