Spent some time memorizing the seven modes in key of G. I'm also trying to mix in the five pentatonic shapes with modes. However, when I play over a backing track in a specific key 'm having trouble knowing which pentatonic shape to use in conjunction with modal playing. Also, many times playing a specific modal scale just doesn't sound right over the same key. I think I'm on the verge of an "ah ha" moment,,just need a little push. I also think that because the modes (Ionian through Locrian), run Minor/Minor/Major/Major/ Minor... I'm missing something here. Who needs Locrian anyway Thanks for any info.
