    some other nice ways are:

    -playing them as three and four note arpeggios
    -stacks of fifths
    -stacks of other intervals

    And with those you can alternate between ascending the first arpeggio then descending the next, ascending phygian, descending lydian, etc. Then have ionian start descending. You can always play all of them ascending and descending, too. I like to start from different modes, too. It is also nice to practice them going root-third-seventh and fifth (on the bottom) - third - seventh. Just about any pattern works well.

    None.
    of course.

    these are just in response to some really basic applied theory questions some TBers had.
