Melodic Minor

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.

Ok, I'll work on making it neater, but you know it's on that fret and that string - which is where your learning comes in; and you figure out what the note is... eventually you should try and learn all the notes on the guitar as this will greatly benefit your playing. =)
