ok so im starting to work on learning the modes and i have a question

For Ionian (major) you start at C then take the 5th and start over and build the scale as Gmaj. The 7th (F) is now sharp (F#). You continue to do this until you have 8 scales.

Now for a mode like Dorian. We start on the second note being D and build the scale:

D-E-F-G-A-B-C

so would we continue to build the new scale the same way we did with major scale ?

So it'd be :

D-E-F-G-A-B-C

start on A so we build A Dorian and we'll have

A-B-Cb-D-E-F-Gb

and so on and so forth and do the same with all the other modes.

Am i doing this right?

actually, the way i see it
Ionian: 2-2-1-2-2-2-1
Dorian: 2-1-2-2-2-1
Phrygian: 1-2-2-2-1-2-2
and so on, where 2 is a whole step(2 frets) and 1 is a half step(1 fret)

basically the order is ionian, dorian, phrygian, lydian, mixolydian, aeolian, locrian. to progress to the next mode, just take the first step and put it as the last step. know what i'm saying?
yeah i know that

im trying to learn all the modes in every key

I think that A Dorian is
A-B-C-D-E-F#-G

But I'm only about 75% sure. I'm barely getting into modes. But A dorian should have the same notes as G Ionian. Unless I learned incorrectly.

Also.. Cb is enharmonic with B. You wouldn't have two of the same tones in a scale.
but dorian has a b3 and a b7... i think

Then I'm right. Cause A has 3 sharps, F# C# G#. So a flatted 3rd and 7th will only leave F#
yeah youre right i got it now
