Modes with Mode Dictionary
If you find memorizing steps was too difficult, this is the lesson for you! Modes are not put together with steps, but by
altering the major scale. The entire point of modes are to change scales to suit your needs.

A mode is just an alteration of a major scale. Once you know your major scales, you can begin to learn modes. Good knowledge of you fretboard and basic intervals is a must for modes. I will go through how to make modes, as well as every mode for every note (Ab, A, Bb, B, C, Db, D, Eb, E, F, Gb, G) for easy refference.

Ionian- Ionian mode is just the name for the major scale. It has no alterations made to it. Play this mode over Major
chords, Maj7, Maj6.
Dorian- Dorian mode has a flattened third and seventh (b3 and b7) making it ideal for m7 chords. You can also use
Dorian mode for m6 chords. Dorian mode is often used in jazz styles.
Phrygian- Phrygian mode has a lowered second, third, sixth, and seventh. Phrygian has a Spanish feel to it so you can
Play it over spanish progressions or heavy metal/rock riffs with a b2.
Lydian- Lydian mode's only alteration is a raised fourth (#4) making it very close to the major scale. The #4 makes it a
good chord to use for Maj7#11 chords, but can also be used over maj7 chords.
Mixolydian- The only alteration in Mixolydian mode is the lowered seventh (b7). This makes it perfect for dominant
7th chords. This mode can be used in blues, jazz or even country.
Aeolian- Aeolian mode, a.k.a. the minor scale has a b3, b6 and b7. (All minor scales have a b3). Aeolian mode works

over minor chords, and can be used as a substitute for Dorian mode, by using it over m7 chords.
Locrian- Locrian mode has a b2, b3, b5, b6 and b7. Locrain mode is very dark sounding. It fits a m7b5 chord perfectly.
Mode Dictionary.
