A mode is a scale in which the tonal center has been displaced. It is simply playing a major scale in any given key and beginning and ending on the same note an octave apart which is not necessarily the root of the key. To comprehend then implement these improvisational scales is an important lesson and the melodic basis for many great jazz artists. Ultimate Scales & Modes for Guitar by Sal Salvador distributed by Santorella Publications, explains this intervallic concept in detail. Scales and modes are an important part of the playing styles of Al DiMeola, John Scofield, Joe Pass, Carlos Santana, Yngwie Malmsteen, Joe Satriani, B. B.
