A note written as "C" for French Horn would come out as an F on concert instruments like guitar. (That's what being "in F" means - just as a trumpet "in Bb" makes a concert Bb sound when playing a...

Great idea, and nicely designed, but there's a few mistakes - not in the info, only in the connections between titles, text and diagrams (check it out).

Yes, every note and chord you mention is within the key of C major, and if Em is the main chord you start and end with, that means you are in E phrygian mode. (That's only a name, don't worry about...

All the modes of a scale do is give you different positions on the neck for playing that scale.
