Okay. If I'm in the key of G, and the scales would be G Ionian, C Lydian, E Aeolian. Is that right?

The modes of G major are G Ionian, A Dorian, B Phrygian, C Lydian, D Mixolydian, E Aeolian, and F# Locrian. However, if you're in the key of G, you would use G Ionian only, not the others.

Remember, scales are not patterns, positions, or boxes. They exist all over the fretboard.

He would use G Major. G Ionian refers to modal music, and is much more rigid. G major is much more flexible. It allows for things like secondary dominants, diminished seventh chords, and accidentals, and should usually be used over G Ionian.

Someones knowledge of guitar companies spelling determines what amps you can own. Really smart people can own things like Framus because they sound like they might be spelled with a "y" but they aren't.
