The Harmonic Minor Scale Index
Everything you might want to know about The Melodic Minor Scale, how it works, patterns to play and how to use it!
This scale has a very classical (baroque) sound. It has some specialised uses, but again should only be looked at after the major scale has been mastered. If I'm honest about it, I don't think I ever use this scale! That's not to say you shouldn't use it, if you play neoclassical music (Malmsteen style!) then you'll be loving it... but for me, I just don't hear it so it never comes out!
