I. Major ModesClick toLearn to Dominate Dominant 7th Chords with the Building Bebop Vol. 2 eBook Today!The Major Scale and its related 7 modes are some of the most popular musical concepts for guitarists of all levels, backgrounds and musical tastes. Because of this, they are often the first scale one studies after they have moved on from thePentatonic Scalesthat are usually taught/studied when we first pick up the guitar and begin to delve into melodic playing. Though there are several standard fingerings for these modes that most people learn along the way, there are also some great non-standard fingerings that can really open up the neck of the guitar and increase our finger dexterity at the same time.Click on any mode below to learn more about how each one is built and see fingerings for 1 and 2 octave patterns with three finger variations for each one.******Major Mode Fingerings for Guitar Ionian Dorian Phrygian Lydian Mixolydian Aeolian LocrianIonian ModeThe Ionian Mode is the first mode of the Major Scale and it contains 7 notes.These notes are:Root M2nd M3rd P4th P5th M6th M7thSo, for a C Ionian Mode, these notes would be:C D E F G A BThere are three different fingerings presented for both the one and two octave Mode.
