THE   MODES

 MODES  are simply starting at a different point
within the scale (ex; the 3rd or 6th note) and playing through the
scale to that same note on the other end.
 For example: the 3rd MODE of C Major would start at the "E" note,
and continue (using only the notes of the "C" scale) to the next "E".
This would give us the following notes;
THE 3RD MODE OF C MAJOR
... E F G A B C D E ...
