    I have to say I think your approach may missing the forest for the trees, so to speak...let's step back a bit and start with a plain I chord (Ab here) - can it not go to any chords that aren't IV or V types?

    Have you come up with these pairs via actual playing and listening, or (as I suspect) some theoretical/algorithmical method?

    I pick this up from this topic. It kind of paints a picture. It's a good example of what I learned. It is all triad chords here but this is a IV-I pattern I learned in each mode.

    Key: C

    E|--1-0-/-3-x-/-5-x-/-7-5-/-8--7-/-10--x-/-12--x--/
    B|--3-1-/-5-3-/-6-5-/-8-6-/-10-8-/-12-10-/-13-12-/
    G|--2-2-/-4-4-/-5-5-/-7-7-/-9--9-/-10-10-/-12-12-/
    D|--0-2-/-2-3-/-3-5-/-5-7-/-7--9-/-9--10-/-10-12-/
    A|--x-0-/-x-2-/-x-3-/-x-5-/-x---7-/-x--8--/-x--10-/
    E|--x-x-/-x-x-/-x-x-/-x-x-/-x----x-/-x--x--/-x---x-/


    So, all together it should be written...

    Dmin-Amin/Emin-Bdim/Fmaj-Cmaj/Gmaj-Dmin/Amin-Emin/Bdim-Fmaj/Cmaj-Gmaj/....and your back to where you started back at the beginning.

    For this section (Dmin-Amin) I'd play A Aeolian
    For this section (Emin-Bdim) I'd play B Locrian
    For this section (Fmaj-Cmaj) I'd play C Ionian
    For this section (Gmaj-Dmin) I'd play D Dorian
    For this section (Amin-Emin) I'd play E Phrygian
    For this section (Bdim-Fmaj) I'd play F Lydian
    For this section (Cmaj-Gmaj) I'd play G Mixolydian...etc...etc... I hope you get the picture here

    Well even that last post is giving me a headache (not to mention an huge yawn lol!), and that's without trying to look at a list with ten pages of chord names!

    Have to say I thought of deleting all that as simply a joke wasting some forum space?

    As someone who for many years almost completely ignored anything at all to do with playing chords, and thinking that to play the sort of solo guitar stuff that I was interested in, I only needed to master fancy phrasing and fancy techniques using single notes, I do now appreciate that chords are important. And and can even be fun too.

    But I donít think I would approach anything to do with chords, or even anything to do with music, by typing out whopping great long lists of chord names like that?

    Is there any point to that?

    To learn more about playing chords, and about which chords and which scales & solo phrases work together, I eventually found certain books and DVD's which explained things and demonstrated things in ways that I could hear as actually working and showing how to get the sounds that I wanted.

    So, obviously, I bought those things and just practiced a lot form them. I don't really see any other effective way to learn and improve? You could do that with a teacher, but that's the exact same thing only with the teachers notes replacing the books.

    Instead of a list of chord names, I'd try practicing your way through the following -

    Don Mock, Jazz Guitar Rhythm Chops(DVD)
    Bruce Buckingham, Chord Melody (Guitar)
    Scott Henderson, Jazz-Rock Mastery (DVD)
    Scott Henderson, Jazz Chord System
    Jazzology, Encyclopedia of Jazz Theory for all Musicians
    Jay Umble, Paying Your Dues With the Blues

    Or of course, you can also learn a lot about chords just by learning and analysing the songs from your favourite bands/guitarists, ie just from their hundreds of songbooks.

    But what I would not do, is write out vast lists of chord names as above. There are essentially only about 4 different chord types after all (maj, min, dom, dimin).
