My teacher has been going inot depth on using modes lately and I just want to make sure of something. Say I am in the key of say E minor, and Im using the Aeolian mode. Since it is a minor scale I could use the E minor scale OR a G major scale right? If im wrong, correct me. Thanks in advance.
They are the same notes, it just depends on the starting note and what notes you base your solo around.
The E minor scale is the Aeolian mode.
You are thinking of the Aeolian mode of E Minor and the Aeolian mode of G Major as two different things.
