Its been a while since I have posted on here...why must they make my 2nd senior year of college so hard. Anyway, I have a theory question for all the guru's out there. I started studying modes and I am starting with the basic C Major Scale going from Ionian to Locrian. I charted all the different modes and moved on to D major. I charted everything down to the C# and found out that I ran out of frets. What I am wondering is when you are playing modes for a certain key, should all the modes be played higher than the key you are playing in? I am probably rambling to much and making this way to complicated. But to me it seems like I shouldnt be able to play the C# Locrian on the 9th (I feel like it must be played on the higest point on the E as possible) when the D Ionian is on the 10th. Prove me wrong so I can force my head to get it right.
