Alright, this is going to expose me for how little I know about theory, but I've not learned about modes because I don't know the answer to the following question. So, modes like Ionian, Dorian, Phrygian, etc. are major modes, yes? To play them in minor music, does one play two scale degrees down on them as one does to go from standard major to minor? I know nothing about modes, and when I try to research them I butt up against terminology I don't understand. So, if I want to play a Dorian mode in the key of D minor (in before lol numetal), would I start on E since if would start on G in F major? Also, can anybody recommend me any cool modes or scales to work on for heavier, slower, sludgy, kind of doomy/kind of stonery metal?
