These modes are equivalent to the Degrees of the Major Scales, as discussed above. Below is a list of these modes based on the C major scale. Often the modes are written in the format “Mode name Degree number” like Lydian IV or Dorian II.
Deg. Mode Played w.r.t. Structure Name C major scale of Intervals Akin to Scale I Ionian C D E F G A B 2-2-1-2-2-2-1 Major II Dorian D E F G A B C 2-1-2-2-2-1-2 Natural Minor (VI#) III Phrygian E F G A B C D 1-2-2-2-1-2-1 Natural Minor (IIb) IV Lydian F G A B C D E 2-2-2-1-2-1-2 Major with (IV#) V Mixolydian G A B C D E F 2-2-1-2-1-2-2 Major with (VIIb) VI Aeolian A B C D E F G 2-1-2-1-2-2-2 Natural Minor VII Locarian B C D E F G A 1-2-1-2-2-2-1 Diminished
Thus the sequence of intervals between the notes being played remains the same 2-2-1-2-2-2-1 in and extended way: 2-2-1-2-2-2-1-2-2-1-2-2-2-1
G major scale is composed of G, A, B, C, D, E, F#, (G) in that order.
So, G major in Dorian mode (i.e. II) will be played as A, B, C, D, E, F#, G, A
E major scale is composed of E, F#, G#, A, B, C#, D#, (E) in that order.
So, E major in Aeolian mode (i.e. VI) will be played as D#, E, F#, G#, A, B, C#
F# major scale is composed of F#, G#, A#, B, C#, D#, F, (F#) in that order.
So, the F# major in Locarian mode (i.e. VII) will be played as F, F#, G#, A#, B, C#, D#, F
Types of Modes: Some modes correspond to certain major or minor scales either purely or when one of the corresponding scale’s degrees is modified (as noted above). These types are:
•Major Modes: These are modes that grossly correspond to major scales
•Minor Modes: These are modes that grossly correspond to minor scales
•Diminished Modes: These are modes that grossly correspond to diminished scales
