if C is the root its mixolydian (which is just a mode name... looking it up wont tell you much.. playing it will )

1 2 3 4 5 6 b7 8... mixolydian

if he had said F first idda probably just laughed

it can be a lot of different scales............Fmajor, Dmelodic minor(descending), F ionian, G dorian, A Phrygian, A# lydian, C Myxolydian, D Aeolian, E Locrian, C dominant 7th, E half diminished(locrian), D natural minor(pure), F etheopian (1,2,3,4,5,6,7), D etheopian (1,2,b3,4,5,b6,b7), and last but not least A neopolitan minor (1,b2,b3,4,5,b6,b7) pretty funny huh? thats what you get with theory.

I don't understand why you were laughing in the first place. I would have thought he was looking for a key as well which is why I put F Major rather than a mode as you did.

sh|t sorry.. thought you were TS for a sec...

i wouldve been laughin cause the major scale should be step 1.. and for a guitarist to not know it makes me laugh and cry

and he asked what scale it was.. so i gave him what he typed

sorry guys i wasn't really thinking when i wrote this question. te way i wrote it is what got us all. the way i wrote it:
C,D,E,F,G,A,Bb,C
is C mixolydian, which i now know.
but if we rearrange it
F,G,A,Bb,C,D,E,F
it becomes f major
and if we rearrange it one last time we get what i was writing and should have known right off the bat,
D,E,F,G,A,Bb,C,D
we get d minor

thanks for all the help tho guys
