-The Modal Concept:

Basic MODES using Colors

Fig.1. Colors can be used to illustrate how Modes function.
Each Mode contains the 3 Colors Red, Green & Blue following the same order.
What distinguishes a Mode is which color is the starting color.  Red for the 1st Mode, Blue for the 2nd & Green for the 3rd.

-This same concept applies to the Notes of a Musial Scale.  Note that in Fig.1 there are 3 colors and therefore can only be 3 Modes of that color sequence.
-In a Musical Scale which has 7 distinct notes then there are 7 Modes.  Each Mode begins with one of the Notes.

-This is the basic idea behind modes.  More on Modes later.
