musical modes

alain clinic

it's time for me to sit down and start learning modes in music, in a more organized and serious way. i had been knowing them exsist for years and only knew them by starting the major scale from different positions (do-re-me-...-do, re-me-fa-...-re, etc.), which is not very useful at all. The motivation came from after watching alain caron's clinic last week, so i'm here trying to work out a schedule and exersises to get to know these modes better based on the things i remembered and understanded from the clinic.
