The Modes Of C Major

Code:
THE MODES OF THE C MAJOR SCALE.


1. C = IONIAN ( c d e f g a b c )
2. D = DORIAN ( d e f g a b c d )
3. E = PHRYGIAN ( e f g a b c d e)
4. F = LYDIAN ( f g a b c d e f )
5. G = MIXOLYDIAN ( g a b c d e f g )
6. A = AEOLIAN ( a b c d e f g a )
7. B = LOCRIAN ( b c d e f g a b )
8. C = IONIAN ( c d e f g a b c )

this is probably the most bassic way to look at it.

QUESTION

im not shure if this is right,

but i thought that the formula up the top of this thread for the
modes of C Major, also might be the same formula for finding modes
in every other minor/major scale.

does this apply?

thinking about this, i tried out this idea for the three types
of minor scale in the key of C.

first there is C Natural Minor, then C Harmonic Minor and
then finally C Melodic Minor.

is this correct?

if not,
would someone please correct me with the proper method of this
Please.


thanks, mr marcus.

HERE IS THE 3 TYPES OF MINOR SCALES IN THE KEY OF C,
WITH THE MODES OF EACH TONE (i think...?)


Code:
THE MODES OF THE C NATURAL MINOR SCALE. 


1. C  = IONIAN ( C D Eb F G Ab Bb C ) 
2. D  = DORIAN ( D Eb F G Ab Bb C D ) 
3. Eb = PHRYGIAN ( Eb F G Ab Bb C D Eb ) 
4. F  = LYDIAN ( F G Ab Bb C D Eb F ) 
5. G  = MIXOLYDIAN ( G Ab Bb C D Eb F G ) 
6. Ab = AEOLIAN ( Ab Bb C D Eb F G Ab ) 
7. Bb  = LOCRIAN ( Bb C D Eb F G Ab Bb ) 
8. C  = IONIAN ( C D Eb F G Ab Bb C ) 




THE MODES OF THE C HARMONIC MINOR SCALE. 


1. C  = IONIAN ( C D Eb F G Ab B C ) 
2. D  = DORIAN ( D Eb F G Ab B C D ) 
3. Eb = PHRYGIAN ( Eb F G Ab B C D Eb ) 
4. F  = LYDIAN ( F G Ab B C D Eb F ) 
5. G  = MIXOLYDIAN ( G Ab B C D Eb F G ) 
6. Ab = AEOLIAN ( Ab B C D Eb F G Ab ) 
7. B  = LOCRIAN ( B C D Eb F G Ab B ) 
8. C  = IONIAN ( C D Eb F G Ab B C ) 



THE MODES OF THE C MELODIC MINOR SCALE. 


1. C  = IONIAN ( C D Eb F G A B C ) 
2. D  = DORIAN ( D Eb F G A B C D ) 
3. Eb = PHRYGIAN ( Eb F G A B C D Eb ) 
4. F  = LYDIAN ( F G A B C D Eb F ) 
5. G  = MIXOLYDIAN ( G A B C D Eb F G ) 
6. A  = AEOLIAN ( A B C D Eb F G A ) 
7. B  = LOCRIAN ( B C D Eb F G A B ) 
8. C  = IONIAN ( C D Eb F G A B C )
are they right or wrong?

please reply.

Wrong.

C natural minor is the same scale as C aeolian, it can never be C ionian, which is C major scale.

And as far as melodic minor goes, the modes are:

I) C melodic minor
II) D phrygian #6
III) Eb lydian #5
IV) F mixolydian #4
V) G mixolydian b6
VI) A aeolian b5
VII) B alt (or "super locrian"),

spelled out (loud ),
I) C, D, Eb, F, G, A, B, C
II) D, Eb, F, G, A, B, C
III) Eb, F, G, A, B, C, D... I bet yougetthepicture.

The point is to analyze each scale from its root.

Also check out the chords (and arpeggios!!!) coming out of each scales, as they are more important playing-wise [arpeggio-based playing is basically playing chords over chords (not necessarily just min7 on min7, experiment!!!)].

For C mel min: I) Cmmaj7 II) Dm7 III) Ebmaj7#5 (#11) or Ebmaj7b5 IV) F7 or F7b5 V) G7 or G7#5 VI) Am7b5 VII) B alt or B7b9b5 or B7#9#5 etc... play all the arpeggios over respective chords, also play them over a C drone, concentrate, listen.

I guess that enough drivel for now.
