Here’s a lesson on the Melodic Minor for you. First check out the track below (you can download it too). Then have a look over the TAB/notation below [download it here]
The solo uses the G Melodic Minor scale: G A Bb C D E F# G. Re-arranging that lot in this order – G Bb D F# A C E [1 b3 5 7 9 11 13] – gives you the basic harmony for the scale: Gm(maj7) with possible extensions: 9, 11 and 13.
If you’d like to learn more about the Melodic Minor and all the cool sounds you can make with it, plus how to apply it to the tunes you play, then check out my course: Unlocking The Melodic Minor Modes over at Electric Campfire.
It’s a video course where we look at each mode individually. You’ll learn how to play the modes, where to use them, some beautiful voicings that give you the flavour of each mode, the theory, examples of the harmony from tunes, and more. Also, in the videos I show you step-by-step how to play these examples.
