    You're doing well. You're getting nice melodies. Nothing to bitch about here...the important thing is to keep recording, practicing (and posting if you think you're not doing it right).

    ^ thanx zing.....but i know that the main question is what is the difference in terms of their usage? when both are used for playing solo what difference does it make? and what makes u go for either a mode or a pentatonic scale while soloing?............

    and i believe u're asking me the software that i use for recording...........thats Cakewalk's Sonar 1.0 ....n i have ovation applause electro acoustic guitar......thats all........thanx for listening and responding

    thnx 4 the info - tht electro acoustic sounds gooooooooood
    as 4 modes, its ur choice what 'sound' u want 2 create - gr8 players tend to favor a particular mode & thts wht gives their distinctive sound/flavor
    e.g. satriani -> lydian, santana -> dorian, knopfler -> aeolian, zappa -> mixolydian ..... n all this was built on top of a solid pentatonic foundation
