So I played these scales all the time but I never put them together.. if you know either the major or minor scale you can play any mode and major/minor scale just by finding where to start it... I know might be old stuff but it blew my mind how I never knew by using the F minor scale positions I could play C phrygian. Or I could play G major using E minor.
and that's why you should learn the notes scales contains rather than just the patterns. The notes and intervals are absolute, they ARE the scale - however as you've discovered a pattern can be any number of things.

yep thats what modes are enjoy
love music! just when you think you know something boom!
Lol, these kinds of threads make me smile. :]
you're on the right track buddy
They share the same notes, but they're not the same. Please don't think you're ever soloing in D dorian over a C - Am - F - G progression, 'cause it's impossible. The scales and modes are determined by the harmony.
