Modes and the C Aeolian Scale

Playing Patterns in the C aeolian scale
So far, all we've done is just go either up and down the scale. Not very interesting. One way to make it more interesting is to play patterns in the scale. In the example below, we play each notes in the scale in an ascending fashion, but we precede them by playing the note below it in the scale, then the note above it, and then are target note. Thus, in beat 3 of measure 1, our target note is D, and we precede it by playing the note below it (C) and then the note above (Eb), and then we play the D. We then do the same thing in a descending fashion:
