I recently came across the episode of SBL talking about how the natural major scale (Ionian mode) is the most important scale that you should learn super well first and then navigate to all the other modes after. I guess I just wanted y'all's thoughts on instead of basing around the natural major scale, basing around the natural minor scale (aeolian mode), learning that super well and then exploring the modes from that. Perhaps just from the type of music I listen to, I'm inherently more comfortable playing in that scale than the major and melodies and what not seem to come more naturally to me. So would it be a bad idea for me to just go hard into the natural minor scale as like the parent of everything else, or should tough it up and play it by the book and do the natural major?? Thanks!
