Melodic Minor

by JazzMaverick (Nov 23, 2008)

For those who don't know the Major Scale, don't attempt to look at this lesson, it'll be way over your head.

The Melodic Minor is favoured in Jazz, and it's fairly complicated to those who haven't yet understood the major scale. Because the two relate, due to similar modal shapes, names and intervals.

Sorry if it's difficult to see. This should hopefully help you, and I needn't explain the basics as I'm sure you'd know them due to understanding the major scale.

The best advice I can give to you is to start transcribing songs with this scale.
