Harmonic Minor Scale 4 Fingerings
The Harmonic Minor scale is a seven note per octave series of notes. When harmonized the notes of the harmonic 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 Harmonic Minor scale .
C D Eb F G Ab B notes of the C Harmonic Minor D Eb F G Ab B C notes of the D Locrian 6 Eb F G Ab B C D notes of the Eb ionian #5 F G Ab B C D Eb notes of the F Dorian #4 G Ab B C D Eb F notes of the G Phrygian Dominant Ab B C D Eb F G notes of the A Lydian #2 B C D Eb F G Ab notes of the B Altered
The interval or distance between all seven notes would be a series of Whole steps and Half steps
C - D - Eb - F - G - Ab B - C Whole – Half – Whole – Whole – Half – Whole & half – Half
No matter what key you are in this formula will always work.
In this video I will demonstrate the harmonic minor scale using 4 different fingerings in the key of D harmonic minor.
