Javalina's post above is good and informative, although it's very tough to read or teach theory by words alone.
Start with the Major scale and learn all the diatonic chords and how they interact harmonically. Reading about the Circle of 5ths will help a lot. Once you grasp that, expanding your thinking to the other modes will become a lot easier.
