okay so ive taken some time to think things out....and ive come back with some probable conclusions....i kinda made this list;

1. [U]C MAJOR SCALE:[/U]

C D E F G A B C(2)

2. [U]MAJOR SCALE IN THE KEY OF C:[/U]

C D E F G A B C(2)

3. [U]C MAJOR SCALE IN THE KEY OF C:[/U]

C D E F G A B C(2)

okay if i do the same thing with its relative minor;

4. [U]A MINOR SCALE:[/U]

A B C D E F G A(2)

5. [U]MINOR SCALE IN THE KEY OF A:[/U]

A B C D E F G A(2)

6. [U]A MINOR SCALE IN THE KEY OF C:[/U]

C D E F G A B C(2) woala the C MAJOR SCALE; Why? That’s because I took the chromatic notes, applied the minor formula WHWWHWW and wrote down the resulting notes starting with the C note (cuz it’s the key of C).
This is my conclusion only and I could be incoherent…please analyse this list and correct anything that might be wrong...n e ways what im trying to prove is that I continued and come up with something like:

7. [U]AEOLIAN MODE IN THE KEY OF C:[/U]

C MAJOR SCALE

8. [U]A AEOLIAN MODE IN THE KEY OF C:[/U]

C MAJOR SCALE

its like never ending....

9. [U]DORIAN IN THE KEY OF D:[/U]

C MAJOR SCALE

So………….

10. [U]A MINOR IN THE KEY OF F:[/U]

F G A B C D E F(2)

But isn’t it actually F LYDIAN of C MAJOR???

From all of the data above can we actually say about the [U]notes[/U] of the scale/modes that;

(C MAJOR SCALE) = (A MINOR IN THE KEY OF C) = (A MINOR IN THE KEY OF F / F LYDIAN OF THE C MAJOR SCALE)

I mean they end up with the same notes of the C MAJOR SCALE.

One thing I do know is that starting on a different note makes the sound different even if the notes are same….hope ive not put up some senseless post…..looking forward to your replys cuz ive got more coming up hehe! :)

Let's analize your post and see if this helps from the confusion.
#5 (minor scale in the key of A)
Key of A = A-B-C#-D-E-F#-G#-A
The Relative minor scale in the key of A would be;
F# Aeolian mode (F# Natural minor scale) = F#-G#-A-B-C#-D-E-F#

#9 (Dorian mode in the key of D)
Key of D = D-E-F#-G-A-B-C#-D
The Dorian mode in the key of D would be;
E Dorian mode = E-F#-G-A-B-C#-D-E

#10 (minor scale in the key of F)
Key of F = F-G-A-Bb-C-D-E-F
The Relative minor scale in the key of F would be;
D Aeolian mode (D Natural minor scale) = D-E-F-G-A-Bb-C-D

Note;;;;; The (A) minor scale in the key of F would be;
(A) Phrygian mode = A-Bb-C-D-E-F-G-A

Try working from this point and see if you can recognize what the Relative minor (Aeolian mode) would be in the key of G.
