Im a guitarist, i've been playing for 14 years, im now 20. I am fairly new to music theory, i have taken guitar lessons (for a while from Jason Moss of the Cherry Poppin Daddies) and ive even taken a music fundamentals class, and i understand a lot but one thing that gets me time and time again are the modes *insert suspensful music here* Ive got the basic concept of the Maj scale modes but im having trouble applying that. Any suggestions or tips on learning to fully understand the modes?

Thanks for anyhelp..

this seemed to give me a lot of hits - http://www.google.com/search?hl=en&lr=&safe=off&q=%22modes%22+%22dorian%22

I think if you play progressive rock and give guitar lessons it's almost beyond essential for you to understand and be fluent in the basic diatonic modes.
