    In terms of popularity I'd say Dorian and Natural Minor (Aeolian) depending on the style of music but there are plenty of others.

    The only person that knows all the diatonic chords is Allan Holdsworth - His REH video is well worth checking out.

    Just avoid the whole parent scale way of applying modes. I think where most slip up is the application of the theory on guitar vs. how it actually works.

    You should be muting unwanted string noise with your left hand (if you're right handed) or you can also put a string dampening device over the first fret. This could be a hairband or even a sock.

    He definitely doesn't use strict alternate picking, it's more a combination of techniques that rely on momentum rather than any one technique to generate speed. I find his live playing a bit sloppy...
