Well ive got my modes down to a T and i know them all well by ear but i dont what chords each of them are supposed to be played with and what the logic/theory behind the chords and the modes connection is. Can anyone help me out?
#2
I could be wrong, but i'm pretty sure... Say you're in the key of C major, (meaning you can use the chords C, Dmin, Emin, F, G, Amin, Bdim) then you can play the C Ionian, C Dorian, C Phrygian, C Lydian, C Mixolydian, C Aeolian, and C Locrian scales over any 'mix' or progression of the aforementioned chords.
#3
no, actually you'd use:

C Ionian
D Dorian
E Phrygian
F Lydian
G Mixolydian
A Aeolian
B Locrian

all of those modes are in the key of C major, and you would be best suited using the appropriate mode over that particular chord...this is called Pitch Axis Theory, and you don't have to follow these guidelines, but if you do it will sound good nonetheless

of course it wouldn't work, A major isn't even in the key of C

I have no clue about modes, but from what he^ said I understand that the tonic chord goes with ionian, the 2nd with dorian, the third with phyrigian, and so on... It's simple.

well, the added tones you speak of i.e. 13, 7 etc do not determine the tonality of the chord, so they make no difference when choosing a mode to play over it...however, there are instances where one mode would fit much better than another...for example, let's say you have a min7b5 chord...the dorian mode might work over it if used correctly, but the Locrian mode fits perfectly because the scale itself contains a b5...or let's say you have a maj7#11 chord...Ionian might work, but not nearly as well as Lydian because of the inclusion of #4(11)...take a gander at the link provided in my last post, with a bit of study you should figure it out fairly quickly

take a sheet of staff paper and write out a major scale. then build chords off each scale step by stacking thirds ( if you start on a space , your next ascending space is a third. if you start on a line , a third is the next line )

make sure you have the proper key signature for your scale.

once you do this for one scale , you can build chords for all relative scales (modes )

start with three part harmony chords ( three notes )

you will notice that just as your (relative ) modes use all the same notes , so do your chords.
#13
I think you still need to study a little more about modes.
