implying modes?

ok - this question is probably a little vague but if anyone can help me out here its you guys. How can i go about implying a mode in my rhythm playing? For example, i know as much as playing a major chord a whole tone up from a major root chord (eg playing F#maj in the key of Emaj) will imply a lydi...
