Fairly basic question, how many of you know the modes (Aeolian, Dorian, Ionian, Lydian, Mixolydian, Phrygian), the major and minor scale, and the major pentatonic, minor pentatonic, minor blues and major blues scales in every position on the fretboard in every key? How many of you prefer to just 'feel' your solo's? conducting a poll because currently i know the major/minor scales and pentatonics, and want to learn the modes to extend my playing, cause ****ing around with pentatonics over and over again is getting boring.

EDIT: sorry, its a damn long poll. Please bear with it.

I doubt much people know all that, I know all pentatonic modes, I'm working on remembering the major scale modes and I know 1 blues scale mode.

Well, it's a matter of seconds to work them out on piano or violin, but I don't know my fretboard very well at the moment.

The church modes are just a major scale with a different root anyway, so it's not that hard.

true for some of them, but not all. lots of them are ( i think) but for others the intervals are all messed up.

EDIT: sorry about the double post, completey forgot.
