so you basically know penatonics and the major and minor scale. Ionian is Major scale, and Aeolian is minor scale. You use scales and modes to improvise with.

you'd have to find the key that the chords belong to...or more specifically, what note they resolve to...then you find the mode that best fits the resolution of the chord...there are WHOLE lessons on modes on this site, go to lessons, we UG'ers are much too lazy to type the stuff out (except Cas)
