I used to Aeolian, now I'm Dorian

My musical style has slightly changed as I now focus more on changing my modes while I play guitar instead of always going back to the Aeolian minor mode. I'm still playing the same notes, but I tend to focus a lot more on the minor7,major7,7 trio.

A few years back I was an Eminor-->Dmajor type of player. Then a few months I started dabbling in minor7 and major7 chords. I find myself often playing the following pattern that I found on wholenote (like I Will Survive by Cake):

Am7 Dm7 G7 Cmaj7 Fmaj7 Bbmaj7 Esus4 E

I tend to play a lot more Dorian than Aeolian these days.
