Melodic Minor “Modes” Breakdown
#BASSNATION in this week’s lessson I’ll be going over the Melodic Minor Scale with you. In this particular lesson I’ll be playing the melodic minor scale over an F minor 6 chord. This is a pretty technical lesson going over several scales, scale degrees and modes. If you need a little review of your scales and modes prior to this lesson be sure to go back over the modes course!

Thanks! it’s definitely packed full but necessary 😎👌🏾
Daric, can you expound on that alterd 5 scale ?
sure, do you mean the super locrian scale?
Sure, I think that was the only one gave an example and explained a bit more than the others but I can break down even further👌🏾
ok looking foward to it
Can you do an excersice going up the neck with the modes different octaves
Absolutely, there’s an exercise that demonstrates this with the major scale modes but not with the melodic minor modes. So we can create a modal exercise for this specific scale (melodic minor), no problem 👌🏾
You can also think of playing these consecutive modes as an exercise as well
Daric this lesson is so rich everytime I watch it I learn more about this scale and the chords, thanks Bro, Keeping it clean clear and percise PEACE !
That’s awesome man… it’s like you enter another world when discovering these scales and modes. Opens up all whole new doorway to your playing. Soak it in man! 😎🤟🏾
Hi. I’ve watched this a couple of times. Harmony and particularly jazz harmony are my weakest points as a musician. We will just put that on the table right now!
I was going to ask you: what makes it an ‘altered’ chord. I watched a couple of short videos elsewhere, just now. I am clear on the fact that for this to work you have to make up the chord to include 1, 3, b7.
Is the ‘altered’ part in the scale the b5; b9; b11; #5; #9; #11?
Thank you 🙂
Also, yes to the 10 minute members’ chat that you suggest in this video, although it seems you are quite busy now as things open up again, so perhaps you’re not planning to do that now (haha – I post so much, I’m most likely way down the queue!!).
Firstly, you do NOT post too much! Lol.
Secondly, you are correcting on the definition of the “altered” meaning. Also the chord needs to ínclude the 5 as well. Just a little more difficult for us bassists to incorporate all on the fretboard at the same time.
Thirdly, I still plan on doing some pop up consultations, just planning logistics of it 😎
