The tonic is the chord that will most likely give a feeling of consonance (or relief) after playing another chord from the key. In a different way, a mode will sound consonant over a particular chord.

This is due to the interaction of the chord with the note you’re playing.

In the key of C, that is C Ionian, D Dorian, E Phrygian, etc. Modes in a series are modes that use the same root note such as C Ionian, C Dorian, C Phrygian, etc. The patterns I provide should help you learn either way. I hope this helps.

The section, “Mode Patterns in a Key or Series” – has me completely baffled here?!

Your comment, “Mode options go down as the chord complexity goes up.”…does this mean that there are fewer Mode options available using extended chords?

In the section, “Listen to the Modes”, “It should change from mode to mode.”…what specifically is “it” referring to?

You make mention of two gravitation pulls. Would this be a correct assessment? “As you will discover, there are two gravitational pulls involved namely, the song’s gravity and the chord’s gravity.”
