    Okay, everytime i watch tv i practice scales.

    This is the first one i practice:
    It says this i the Ionian mode of the major scale, i looked for it at activebass.com and finds 7different but none of them is this one, what's up with this?

    -----------2-4-5---
    -----2-3-5---------
    -3-5---------------
    -------------------

    i also practice this one:
    (dorian?)

    ------------4-5-7---
    --------5-7---------
    -5-7-8--------------
    --------------------

    Minor:

    (aolian?)
    -------------------12-14---
    ----------12-14-15---------
    -12-14-15------------------
    ----------------------------

    Blues:

    |---|---|---|---|
    |-0-|---|-0-|---|
    |-0-|-0-|-0-|---|
    |-0-|---|---|-0-|

    And the pentatonic minor and major.

    What more scales do youthink i should learn?

    All modes of minor/major?

    Also, i practice the extended major/minor/blus scales, bad or good?
