The difference between the modes and the pentatonic is where the "Home" or I chord is. C major pentatonic's home is still C while D Dorian's home is D. The hardest part about using the modes independently from the parent major is making sure that the "Home" or resolving feeling isn't to the parent majors root but to the modes root.

The awesome thing about getting more these things under your belt is so you can choose to use them or not.
For instance thinking I want a minor scale that sounds a bit more majory, I can try the Dorian mode.
Or I want a major scale that sounds more minory, I can try Mixolydian mode.

Its good fun to mess around with them and try and play riffs in the different modes to get a feel for them.
I understand what you are saying mate and agree sure its same notes but less but different order and home base does make different vibe

Re: how essential to learn piano for making trance

You`re not gonna start writing interesting melodies by boxing yourself into some rules that you don`t even understand (by using only white keys in your case), make a melody first using whatever notes you feel like and then try to figure out what rules apply if that is so important to you.

Re: how essential to learn piano for making trance

All the advice in this thread is definitely advice. And it is definitely advice that I consider to be advice-like. And I recommend viewing it as advice that you can either take or leave.
