Modes of the major scale

On the keyboard I'm playing melodies most naturally in the Phrygian(E)
mode, but in the key of F, which makes the keys easier to identify
(all black + 2 white C/F).

Modes[1]

C - Ionian (major)
D - Dorian
E - Phrygian
F - Lydian
G - Mixolydian
A - Aeolean (natural minor)
B - Locrian

Chords[2]

C - Cmaj7   3   5  7
D - Cm7     b3  5 b7
E - Em7     b3  5 b7
F - Fmaj7   3   5  7
G - G7      3   5 b7
A - Am      b3  5 b7
B - Bm7b5   b3 b5 b7



Harmonic minor starting at A has a G->G+
5th mode of this, starting at E, is Phrygian dominant.
