thanks daniel!! sorry i didn't reply sooner.

my brother wrote the modes page (he's mainly guitar), and i just double checked and edited it. i'm so glad you can get something out of it, because i know it's hard to do everything by letters or notes, lol.
it must have been something, going from drums to a tonal instrument. i always think of an instrument as a drum anyway, since rhythm is intrinsic to the notes. i'm sure you're very good at improvisation. thanks again, cogs

Drums, guitar and piano. In that order
I am 62, but feel a whole lot younger. Drums for 55+, guitar studies for 2 years and Piano (self-taught) for 35+. In my modal studies, I needed to check google for an answer. This was one of the sites I checked. I am glad I came across this. Thank you for your hard work and caring attitude. I know you will be a good part of my theory studies resources.

Wow - you're a natural born music teacher. Thank you for FINALLY breaking theory up into small digestible chunks. My stress level for teaching elementary music for the first time with no music background is starting to diminish with each click. You're an angel.

thank you for your question!
this is the Modes page:
http://learneasymusictheory.freehostia.com/modes.shtml

over the key of G Major, we play an 'a minor' scale, with 'a' as the root, and no sharps or flats: abcdefga
it's also called Aeolian (minor) of C Major.

if we keep the same key signature as G Major, starting on the 'A note' gives us a Dorian scale of G Major: ABCDEF#GA

listen for the sound of each one over G Major, to see what you'd like to use.

Ok so I'm in the key of G Major my confusion is when playing the A minor scale within this signature do I use what would be the relative minor scale as it pertains to a C major or stick to the G major signature that is, with a raised F - does that make sense? please let me know
Thanks

michelle, wow, what can i say? i'll bet you sing so well! sometimes i think it's harder for vocalists, because they only have their ears and throat sensations to put the notes in the right place, compared to a fret or key that automatically locates the note. but as with any art, one thing in reference to another thing is how we improve. what kind of music do you play? i'll be glad to give you any help, and thanks for reading! cogs
