Well, I thought I should refresh my scale knowledge,
(I almost never learned/used it, and am learning the keyboard so it would be handy)

But anyway,
when thinking about what notes a minor scale or a mode has,
I always think about the major scale it comes from (mode) or which is the same as the minor scale.
Is this a bad thing in the long run?
Like when I think about B minor I don't know what notes it has got, but then I think: B minor -> D major f# c#.


Is that a bad thing in the long run? Should I really study that more, that when someone says e mixolydian that I immediately think f# c# g# and not a major first?

U jus tneed to be accompanied by it's sounds. Like the characters of the modes soundwise. The easiest are Ionian & Aeolian. For me Mixolydian came quite natural too as wel as dorian and Lydian. You just need to listen music alot in those modes to get to know em basically.

I don't think it is a bad thing, as long as you have a method of finding the notes you require!

I think i do the same thing to be honest.

As long as you learn a major scale pattern over the entire fretboard and strings, you can use the corresponding major scale for your mode.

I actually haven't done it on any fretboard,
I started playing keyboard,
and wanted to be able to improvise on that one really well

thought: as soon as I know it on the keyboard, then it is easdy on the bass
