Now that you know all the patterns lets talk about the minor modes:

You notice that in the past example there were three minor chords, they contained the minor modes of the mayor scale

-Am7(the 2nd degree)Dorian scale
-Bm7(the 3rd degree)Phrygian scale
-Em7(the 6th degree)Aeolian scale( natural minor)

As you notice all the chords are m7 so every time you encounter a m7 chord you can use any of the modes. For example if you encounter the Em7 chord you can use the E Dorian, E Phrygian or E Aeolian scale, or what is the same you can choose the E to be the 2nd, 3rd, or sixth degree of the scale.

E Dorian
E Phrygian
E Aeolian(minor)

You can listen in the example the sound of each mode (3meassures per mode)
