Now we are going to go over the Mixolydian mode. Mixolydian is based on the fifth note of the scale. In C major this gives us G, A, B, C, D, E , F, and G. Building a seventh chord out of that mode gives us the G minor seventh chord.
Lets do the same thing for the E major scale. The notes of E major are E, F sharp, G sharp, A, B, C sharp, and D sharp. So it's Mixolydian mode would be B, C sharp, D sharp, E, F sharp, G sharp, A, and B. Using that mode to create the B minor seventh chord gives us B, D sharp, F sharp, and A.
Next, you can practice the Phrygian Piano Mode .
