Lol I got 100%, that was pretty easy...The only one that confused me was the melodic minor ascending thing. I melodic minor was the same as natural minor ascending and with a b3 descending, but the only choices were b5, #6, #6 and #7, and #7. So I just guessed and went with the 3rd choice because #6=b7 and #7= Root, which the natural minor contains.

77%! I actually did a lot better than I expected. The French Augmented 6th one, the 12 octaves above open string, and the "playing while standing on your head" all had me laughing... laugh.gif I was really lost on a few of them, though.

Excellent score, well done! Although you seem to be a bit confused about the melodic minor, the ascending version has a #6 and #7, the descending version is the same as natural minor. Theres no b3, because the third is already a minor third, if you flatten it any more its just a major second wink.gif Also in a minor key, the #7 is not the same as the root, in for instance A minor, the #7 would be G#, the root is A. smile.gif
I think you may have misinterpreted the question, it is comparing the ascending melodic minor to the natural minor, not to a major scale. But who cares, you got full marks!
