D Melodic Minor Scale 4 Fingerings

D Melodic Minor Scale 4 Fingerings


The Melodic Minor scale is a seven note per octave series of notes. When harmonized the notes of the Melodic Minor scale creates chords which is called diatonic chords because the notes from the scale are not altered or borrowed from another key. For example I will demonstrate with the C Melodic Minor scale.

C  D  Eb  F  G  A  B      notes of the C Melodic Minor      
   D  Eb  F  G  A  B  C      notes of the D Dorian b2 
      Eb  F  G  A  B  C  D      notes of the E Lydian Augmented
          F  G  A  B  C  D  Eb      notes of the F Lydian Dominant 
             G  A  B  C  D  Eb  F      notes of the G Hindu 
                A  B  C  D  Eb  F  G      notes of the A Locrian 2
                   B  C  D  Eb  F  G  A      notes of the B Super Locrian


The interval or distance between all seven notes would be a series of Whole steps and Half steps

C       D       Eb       F       G       A       B      C
  Whole –  Half  – Whole – Whole – Whole – Whole –  Half


No matter what key you are in this formula will always work for the melodic minor scale.
