Notes that are either a minor second or major second above or below the principal note. They're a melodic decoration that don't really affect anything harmonically. So let's say you have a C major chord and you play C-D-C or C-Db-C over it, that D/Db would be a neighbour tone.

Basically they're exactly what the name implies: notes neighbouring another note.

Again, read this article, it's in there:

lol dude you don't need to make a new thread for every kind of tone by tone classification.

...modes and scales are still useless.

I apologize I don't do it purposely. I only make threads on subjects that I don't quite confidently understand and I just happen to be studying this type of material at the moment. I always like getting some clarification on concepts just to make sure that I don't have the wrong idea. Since I got my answer though its back to practice.

I understand that. But a lot of your questions are about very small details that can be covered in a single response, so feel free to just get all those questions out of the way in one place.

Just to add, typically when you're using them as passing tones you're using the lower chromatic and higher diatonic notes.

i.e. in C major: C# <-> D <-> E
