This video is an expansion of a blogpost about modes I wrote back in 2006.
[The Short Version]
Essentially, there are two ways of learning modes:
1. Derivative Approach
2. Parallel Approach
Derivative is taking a major scale and starting it on different notes.
Parallel is using the same root note and flattening or sharpening the notes to get the other modes.
Derivative: same notes, different starting notes
Parallel: different notes, same starting note

[ACTION STEPS] How can you learn this better?
1. Understand the Parallel Aproach process I explained in the video & apply it to another Major Scale.
2. Play a 1-octave Major Scale on your instrument & change one note at a time to get different modes.
3. Pick one mode and improvise using it over a one chord backing track.
