The idea that starting on a different note/degree of the C major scale gives you the modes of C is not correct.
As I have written about in many other posts and Vlogged in many other videos the modes have to be transposed. The parent key or root note will then be C. So for example.
[C] D E F G A B C D =D dorian and NOT C dorian
To transpose this we can say if D is the second note of C [or two 1/2 steps up from C] then what is C the second note of [or two 1/2 steps up from]? Well, it would be Bb
So we have the Bb major scale starting on C
C D Eb F G A Bb C
Now, lets take 4 chords to play over with C as the parent key or root note. Notice that C ionian [Major] only exists in one bar [Bar 3]
Now let’s put these chords into a chart and acknowledge the fast moving harmonic rhythm of 2 chords per bar and 2 chord changes per bar.
We will now create an improvised line to play over these chords.
Same line Double Timed
The first 4 notes
The second 4 notes
The penultimate set of 4 notes
The last 4 notes
