I have been looking up modes for the past couple of days and been trying to understand them but I have learned nothing. I watched you tube videos on it, looked at some lessons on this site and am still lost. Is there something I should learn first before looking at them

What is confusing about them to ya? would be best to start there!

The major scale and diatonic theory in general.

Honestly, modes aren't all that important or useful in modern music.

You can't really learn much of anything about modes from a video - it's something you simply have to study.

However, there's a lot of other stuff to learn theorywise that's easier and also more relevant. Learn the notes on the fretboard then start with the major scale. Read "The Crusade" articles in the columns section too, they'll help put things into context.

modes are like chunks of a scale based on a chord, were you take the relevent notes from a scale, similar to them in a chord, and there you have a mode.


correct me if i am terribly wrong.

I will take a look at all the crusade columns, but one more question I have is when you say learn the major scale, should I learn every major scale in every position

that could take a long time, all you need to do is understand how scales work, not memorise every single scale essentially

Is there a topic I could understand on UG that could explain to me how they work, because I always end up running into something that gets me more confused.

Or is it in The Crusade column
