    Hi Willie,

    I get what modes are. In Module 3, we are asked to build scales (the first is a Db Mixolydian scale) beginning on the tonic given. Which is Db. I thought if I build a mixolydian scale in CMaj. I would begin on G, and play the CM scale from there. But if I start it on C, what would the notes be?

    Is there a lesson on PWW that will help me with this?

    Never mind. I will go through the module again. I think I must have missed something.

    I’ll followup later today.

    Thanks

    I missed the whole module. Now I understand.

    Thanks
