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..

I'd disagree, modes are a pretty essential part of a lot of the music we hear (especially in pop and rock), at least in America...

Oh, they are very much an essential part of music we hear, but actually working to apply and understand them in your basic pop and rock songs?
