How come in the D# aeolian scale, instead of F, the note is an E#? I thought E# didn't exist.
E# and F are enharmonic (just like B# and C). Same note, different name
Then how come we just don't say F instead of E#?

Probably because that's the technical step for the note, going to E# instead of F.

because if you say F then F# when learning the scale it puts two F's into the scale and no E...so in technical terms it is E# cause it is enharmonically equivelent to F

I guess i will simplify it. I believe Pac man had it right. how confusing would it be trying to name the notes of a scale to another musician and list for example 2 e's and 2 b's?
Because the scale/mode is diatonic, you can't have the same note name (F and F#) in the scale twice.

This.

Think of it simply like this - the key sig (the key sig for F#-Major) has an F# in it, The key sig tells you what notes are raised/made flat. So if it has an F#, in the key sig, you can't play an F, because the F is already raised to F#. The only alternative is to use the enharmonic equivalent, E#........
you have to name every letter in a scale. it'd be D# E# F# G# A# B C# D#

check out my jazz tab and ill gladly do a review of any of your stuff

I play the bass clarinet! How 'bout you? PM me!
I would be really thankful if someone could point me to a tutorial with this stuff. You know, a bit of scales practice and the theory behind it? I hardly know what a box is and such.

Start with the Circle of Fifths and move to modes..... plenty of stuff to keep you busy.
I try not to think to deep into that stuff. if its says E#, i know it means F and i know where its at. don't give yourself headaches
