Doesn't matter what tuning.

The relative minor of F major is D. Therefore, they have the same notes.

Bodom beat me to it :(

Ionian 1,2,3,4,5,6,7
Lydian 1,2,3,#4,5,6,7
Mixolydian 1,2,3,4,5,6,b7

Aeolian 1,2,b3,4,5,b6,b7
Dorian 1,2,b3,4,5,6,b7
Phryian 1,b2,b3,4,5,b6,b7

In the key of F all these will have the same notes: F,G,A,bB,C,D,E the difference between them are the intervals. from the questions your asking you wouldn't understand this even if i was right next too you explaining it. But to help you hear it go find a piano(easy instrument to "see" what going on) if you play all the white keys you are in the key of C. play C to the next C hitting just the white keys in order and you just played C major. then Start at A and play to the next A and you just played A minor. then you'll hear how there different yet they used the same notes
