    You should pick a mode that contains the notes of the chord over which you're playing.

    E.g. dominant 7 = mixolydian. Minor 7 = Aeolian.

    That's all I know about modes.

    There isn't necessarily one mode that fits over one chord. Over a Min 7 chord, for example, you could play dorian, aeolian, phrygian, minor/sus/kumoi/hirojoshi/pelog pentatontics, etc.
