Major Scale Modes

 

If you've read the tutorial covering the theory behind major scale modes, then you should find the following easy enough to understand.

The tables below show the modes contained within each of the major scales. Take time to learn the theory behind all of this and please don't just try to learn all of these parrot-fashion. This is included here so that if you want to try and work out the modes of a particular major scale then you can use these tables to check if you've got it right.
