But all traditional music is in one mode or another! Major key is Ionian, and minor is Aeolian. Dorian is sort of a different, less common version of a minor key (minor 3 while retaining the major 6 and 7).

OK, so, somebody stop me if this is too much. Raag, scale, and mode are all related concepts. Your instument can make more different notes than you can use (unless you are Schoenberg) you don't use all 12 notes in an octave on the piano, you choose a smaller set of notes to use. This choice is a "scale". The most basic scales are pentatonic (black keys on keyboard) and diatonic (white keys).

Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:38am

Modes are a way to get new scales from old. If you play all the white keys from C to C it's a standard major scale. But if you start on A you get minor. Dorian is what you get if you start on D. It's much less common.

You can get minor from major by starting on a different note (A instead of C) and keeping all the same pitches. But you can also get a minor scale by keeping the C as the starting note, and changing some of the pitches (flatten the 3, 6, and 7 - use black keys). So "scale" and "mode" are very related
