Hi Guys! We will start talking about diminished scales plus ( Whole Half & Half Whole)
This video chat will be at least 2 hours so be ready smile.gif
I will review harmonic minor that we were talking about!
Modes:

Aeolian #7
Locrian #6
Ionian #5
Dorian #4
Phrygian Major
Lydian #2
Mixolydian #1

Usage:
You can play harmonic minor every time when you would normally play natural minor it will add some spice into your solo
The only exception is Mixolydian#1 you can use this scale if you see a chord progression that has chords from major scale
for example:
Emi - Ami - B7 - Emi
This is a I-IV-V chord progression in minor but instead of having a Bmi chord we have a B7 which is coming from I-IV-V major
