    Blowing off, for me, means mindlessly playing scales because they fit without any thought towards thematic development.
    For players who haven't put in the time, it's a shortcut. "Play this mode cover this Chord and you're good to go."

    A good thing to do is to play chords from a Real Book(rythm then arpeggios, or notes from the chords). Choose tunes with lots of chords. When you know all that, you get a better understanding of modes, if you connect them with chords.

    Modes are waste of time. Really.

    If it's all you focus on, then yeah.

    If you understand modes as building blocks of harmony, then you're on the right path. If you're just blowing G Mixolydian over a chord progression in G then you're not getting what the modes really do. If you're playing G Mixolydian over a C major chord, then you get it.

    I like this comment. I think it really describes any exercise or gaining of knowledge.
