I must be stuck on stupid, because I cannot figure out how to read they formula for the scales chart.

For instance for a Aeolian is

Scale - Aeolian
1,2,b3,4,5,b6,b7

Thus I read it as,
A B C D E Fb Gb

But they have it as

A B C D E F G

What am I doing wrong?

Guitar Guru are you still out there?

what you do wrong is the scale you start with you don't start with ABCDEFG all the time you start with the Major , e.g. A Aeolian you start with the A Major scale A B C# D E F# G# then you do the same with with you did before and you'll get ABCDEFG
so if you want G aeolian f.e. you take Gmajor , G A B C D E F# and take the intervals and come G A Bb C D Eb F

this way you can get all aeolians with just one interval

hope you get it:)
